COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Quadrupel is La Trappes 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.

Warm esters and sweet alcohol as well as some malty hints dominates the aroma. The flavour is quite complex dominated by figs, orange, plums soft malt and a long balanced finish with some hops. OK but could use a year or two to settle...

tympanic (168) - New York, New York, USA - MAY 1, 2008
Bottle labeled Konings hoeven. This is an interestingly spicy quadrupel. Fizzy, peppery, malty, chewy, warm. Though I am drinking this mid-spring, I appreciate the full-bodied complexity of this wonderful brew.

ogivlado (7656) - Zagreb, CROATIA - APR 29, 2008
Bottled(330ml). -Ruby red coloured, small head that fade away for about 2 seconds (the beer was served too cold), pleasant alcoholic fruity nose. The taste is sweet fruity (berries and dried fruit), alcoholic spicy and light yeasty. Very complex brew. This is a beer to drink and enjoy in chilly spring evening.

The suspended carbonation of this exquisite ale in a quadruppel brew leaves me speechless, but not wordless. One of my favoraite Belgian brews to date, its flavor is sublime, the aftertaste beckons for anolther gullp. What a treat!

Thanks to Ramenen. Bottle: Caramel and licorice on a floral and spicy background. ABV is well blended into this complex brew.

Bottle. Bought it at New Beer Distributors in NYC. Pours a burgundy color. Medium bodied, sweet malty taste, very rich and warming.

A powerful creamy aftertaste is the signature of this beer. Dark and warming alcohol with a sweet creamy overlay. Chewy too. Beautiful.

SamGamgee (2452) - down the whirlpool, California, USA - APR 25, 2008
33cl bottle. Pours a dark amber-red with a lacy head; a little light for a quad, but still nice looking. The aroma is a little tart and yeasty with a healthy dose of alcohol that burns a little. Caramel, raspberry, yeasty tanginess and some bubble-gum flavors. At first, the funky tartness is pretty noticeable, but it mellows as the beer warms. Finishes dry with a sharp alcohol bite that is slightly distracting. Pretty full body with smooth, creamy carbonation. A little different than the other trappist quads that Ive had, with less malt richness and more alcohol bite. Almost leaning toward a tripel with the dryer spicier qualities.

beerguy101 (5360) - Newark, California, USA - APR 23, 2008
This quad pours a dark amber color from a 33cl bottle. Large sized white foamy head, with good retention and nice lacing. The aroma is malty, spicy and sweet. A full bodied Belgian Quadruple. The malts are fruity and sweet, with some biscuit malt at the finish. Nice dark fruit and slightly spicy as well. The 10% alcohol is well hidden. Nice sipping beer. The flavors intensify and mellow as this beer warms. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.

Pours an attractive amber mahogany with a two finger off white head that persists. Nose is interesting, with malt and a bready aroma. A touch of brown sugar if you inhale deeply. The flavor is richer and very little trace of a bready influence can be found. Much more dried fruit and caramel along with candied sugars. A bit of a dry finish rounds this out nicely. Lively on the palate.
