UPDATED: JUN 22, 2018 Ottima trappista, ambrata velata, aroma caramelloso e resinoso. Birra estremamente morbida

bierwolf78 (12) - De Weere, NETHERLANDS - JUN 22, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 22, 2018 Een Quadruppel waar je niet over uitgepraat raakt, maar het staat nog steeds als een huis. Geur: vers brooddeeg, caramel, chocolade en koffie. Smaak: gedroogd fruit, chocolade, beetje bitterheid van mout, suikers en volle romige koffie. Een vol en romig mondgevoel. Nasmaak blijft lekker hangen. Over het algemeen een prima Quad, jammer van die hele poppenkast eromheen. Persoonlijk liever Trappistes Rochefort of St. Bernardus Abt omdat verkrijgbaarheid van dit bier en veel te hoge vraagprijs gewoon zwaar beroerd is.

NikosDal (73) - Athens, Chalandri, GREECE - JUN 18, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 18, 2018 Dark amber color with a rich, thick beige head. Aromas of yeast, bread wood, malt. Complex taste. Gives the idea of matured liquor without feeling the alcohol. Very good balance between bitterness and sweetness. Rich body and a creamy texture. Low carbonation. Overall it is beer to taste at least once especially for Belgian beer/trappist beer lovers. I am not yet convinsed it worths the cost to have it but it is a hell good beer. Enjoy!

UPDATED: JUN 13, 2018 Nose - a lot of grapes, typical aroma for Italian wines. Mouth: a bit hard bitter taste and lefts alcoholic hot end. Close but not the same to Trappist rocherfort 10, but a bit more bitter. Color is opaque brown. Really good.

UPDATED: JUN 12, 2018 Again. All the same. Again, the same. La Trappe Quadrupel is still better

DraftDodger (2082) - Copenhagen, DENMARK - JUN 10, 2018
Copenhagen 10/6 2018. 33 cl bottle from Den Belgiske Ølbutik, Vanløse. Nondescript bottle with no label. All information on the Golden Cap including the ABV and the Shield of St. Sixtus with a Palm Tree. Pours murky and hazy deep brown with big off-white head. Settles as 1 cm thick layer of foam sloping gently over the center of the glass. Moderate lacing. Aroma is sweetish, potent and with more than a hint of alcohol. Humid basement, light banana, caramel, raisins, hints of vanilla, woody alcoholic oak. Gets even more potent as the beer warms up. Soft carbonation. Medium thick smooth texture. A little sticky. Flavor has strong sweetness followed by and balanced by rather strong bitterness. Aftertaste is dense and sweet with bitter notes. Light alcoholic burn. Very fine elegant Quadrupe. Boozy without being brutal, discrete yet intense. The only thing I can complain about is that the bottle is so small.

pippomix (67) - ITALY - JUN 6, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 6, 2018 Birra trappista conservata gelosamente per mesi in cantina in attesa dell'occasione giusta (per chi non lo sapesse è sicuramente una tra le birre più rare da trovare e di conseguenza costosa). Colore marrone scuro e schiuma cremosa color cappuccino, densa e molto molto persistente. Odore fantastico, frutta matura, liquirizia... ma è al palato che da il meglio di se, un lungo sorso vellutato dove si sprigionano diversi sapori...prugna, cioccolato, malto caramellato...e finale asciutto e morbido. Da bere sicuramente a fine pasto sorseggiandola lentamente ad una temperatura sopra i 12-14 gradi.

darb85 (328) - Canton, Michigan, USA - JUN 5, 2018
UPDATED: JUN 5, 2018 Wow. This is the most balanced Belgium I've ever had. Sweet and mellow. I would love a second bottle maybe in another ten years....

gausti (34) - AUSTRIA - MAY 29, 2018
Unglaublich voller Geschmack, am Gaumen würziger Waldhonig, mitteldunkle Schokolade, Grapefruitnoten, leichte bis mittlere Süße, dezente Bittere und leichte süße. Definitiv eines der besten Biere Weltweit!
