Tasted in close succession to St. Bernardus Abt 12.

Poured into Duvel tulip.

A-Amber, orange hue with a light tan head

S-Sweet dark fruit smell--raisin, plum.

T-Slightly alcoholic sweetness, with subtle burnt malts. Lingering bitterness.

M-Pretty thin, for a quad.

O-The alcohol is much more noticeable than the other characteristics of this beer. It was enjoyable as an in between beer on New Year's, but nothing close to the quality of St. B.

This pours a cloudy dark golden colour with a dense just off white head. Lots of lacing.

The nose is dominated by sweet malt (caramel) and booze. Some spiciness as well.

Warmth from the booze is their on the palate but not overpowering. Caramel more evident. A bit of toffee. Some fruitiness.

Medium bodied. Highish carbonation.

An ok quadrupel. Never my favourite style. A real sipper.

La Trappe Quadrupel is a delicious Quad with malty, honey flavours.

A: A surprisingly light brown colour and a 3 mm head that fades to pretty light lacing. 3.5

S: Slightly roasty malt with some vanilla and banana. 4

T: Strong malty base with some lovely sweet honey flavours. The finish is pretty neutral. 4.5

M: Some foamy and thick. 5

O: 4

Dark burgundy elixer, a few fingers of roasted marshmallow head and bits of floaties, yumma...Smells like some sweet raisin and and sugar cookies, belgian yeast and faint coca cola. Thick sweet, bready, yeasty, a hint of spice, and lots of love in the palate. Basically it tastes like christmas dessert in a bottle. Really it is the epitome of all the flavors I taste in other Quads and say, I wish it had more of this or that. Well all those great notes are expressed strongly in this quad. Thick heavy body and cuddly carbonation caress the tongue in a syrupy chewy mess. Overall I'm a happy camper, if you have the means, I highly recommend it.
