COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel is La Trappe’s heaviest ale with a stunning amber colour. Its warm and intense flavour is rich and finely balanced. Malty sweet, slightly burnt, and pleasantly bitter with a sweet aftertaste. Quadrupel continues to ferment after bottling and offers aromas of banana, almond, vanilla and others.

Reviewing bottle just around spoilage date 10/2018. Almost 3 years from bottling, Beer perfectly kept, not spoiled. Nose huge blast of fresh juice making, smell of apricots, nectarines, oranges and alcohol. Big full body and smooth slightly oily mouth feel. Profound strong brandied fruit flavors than orange zest, overripe apricots and overripe banana. Much more savory than fresh batches but keeps medium sweetness and not a hint of sourness has developed. I can’t find any strong hop aromas and bitterness is also gone in the wind. Least to say it’s extremely drinkable for viscous strong ale. Amazing fresh and even better aged... it a great dessert. My personal favorite.

What is not to love about this quad? It really just has everything you’d expect from a good belgian ale; spice, banana, bitterness, dried fruits, burnt sugar sweetness. Mouthfeel is excellent, slightly sticky but not overly so. I could do an indepth review of every nuance, but this is one beer when I don’t want to go to deep, and simply enjoy it and experience it.

Bottle from Smak Piwa. Beer served in Goblet Glass. Pours dark ruby with small head. Aroma is plummy, cherries, grapes, marmalade, sugary. Taste is red and dark fruits, caramel, malty, after warming up alcohol is a little bit milder but still noticable. Could be better balanced maybe after some longer storage.

From tap at the Monk. Pours beautiful clear amber brown with a fluffy off white head. Aromas of malt, spice, banana, burnt sugar. Deliciously full bodied with deep malty, yeasty, funky flavors, rasins, dates, banana. Soft carbonation, lingering finish with pleasant alcohol warmth. Outstanding.

Per ser una cervesa quadruple l´he trobat poc contundent, amb poc recorregut i gens complexa. No es una mala cervesa però si que està a molta distància de les gransc cerveses quadruples

Aukedebier (29) - KAUTTUA, FINLAND - JUL 7, 2017
Bought at drankdozijn.nl in a 750 ml bottle with cork, kept in the basement for 5 months . Appearance; golden to amber beer with an off white head, which stays nicely. Aroma; banana, vanilla, Belgian yeast and sweet malts. Taste; wow! hard where to start.. because it is really complex. First banana and the Belgian yeast. then a warm sweetness with a bit of alcohol. After that a mild taste of herbal hops which stays on your tongue for a while. Very well balanced beer with the alcohol well hidden. The carbonation is also right in this one. This is a master piece, to my opinion. Serious beer lovers should have this one in their taste collection.

UPDATED: JUL 11, 2017 Flasche (33 cl) vom City Shop im Liangmaqiao DRC, Peking. - Goldrotbraun, trüb. - In der Nase schwere obergärig-süße Frucht, leicht parfümiert aber aufgelockert durch herbe Zitrusfrucht. - Antrunk breit malzsüß mit üppigen obergärigen Fruchtaromen: Pfirsich, überreife Banane, grundiert von Karamel und krautiger Herbe, die in Verbindung mit der sirupartigen Süße und dem überdeutlichen Alkohol an Kräuterlikör erinnert. Im Abgang massige alkoholische Schwere, krautig-derbe Bittere und zarte holzig-pilzige Noten. - Diese belgischen Starkbiere, von denen ich mal so begeistert war, schmecken mir je länger desto weniger: zu süß, zu bananig und zu vage gehopft sind die meisten. Dies ist noch eins der besseren, aber auch kein Bier, das ich ein zweites Mal trinken möchte. Ein kernig gehopftes fränkisches Kellerbier ist mir lieber.

Bursztynowa barwa, sporawa piana, która zostawia ślady na szkle. W aromacie da się wyczuć dużo nutek, ale chyba jest trochę za mało intensywny. Smakuje nieźle, ale do najlepszych quadrupli mu daleko. Można łatwo dostać w dobrej cenie, całkiem dobre piwo, ale nie jest to coś, za co dałbym się pokroić.
