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.

Sweet with subtle fruity flavor. Dangerously smooth and easy to drink.

750ml Bottle - Pours a deep ruby brown with off-white foam head that dissipates slowly. Smells of sweet dark & dried fruit. Tastes very sweet, with strong notes of dried fruit, with a touch of banana and spice. A little surypy in texture and finish. Great little gem of a quad.

First sniff is banana, first sip is raisin. No hint of the abv until a few sips in. It decided to foam at opening, but not disastrously. Very pretty in the glass, very smooth going down. This could be a dangerous "I'm thirsty" beer....

Served in a clear pint glass, filled with almost no off-white head, from a tap it came. It's brightly copper-amber and just slightly cloudy. It provides that Belgian smell of yeast and malt, with a little hops added. It's banana-like sweet and unfortunately, a bit of banana-like stickiness comes with it. But, not so much more than others within the style, even the great ones. To its credit, there is also much more than the banana hit. The notes described almond and vanilla presence and vanilla is a definite. There's also some cinnamon, or maybe clove reference that, with the ABV, provides a nice bite. Overall, this drinks mostly sweet and spicy. The aforementioned stickiness is much better than it being too thin. There's no glass lacing and little alcohol hit, which is only an asset to the overall taste. This hits all the right notes for a Belgian Quad, so those that love them will love this one.

750 ml bottle into a chalice. Secret code L19A21, had 8/21/21.

Pours a medium reddish amber, a little cloudy, with a one and a half inch foamy head with very good retention and a decent amount of foamy lacing. Aromas of caramel, malt, banana, spices, grapes, Candi sugar, a bit of a sweet aroma as it warms. Mostly similar flavors- caramel, malt, spices, grapes, Candi sugar, some plums, a light, earthy hop bitterness midway through the finish. Smooth, semi- dry, a very good medium body, well carbonated.

This is lighter than typical for the style, but matches up well to any Quad. The grapes and caramel are the most prominent. Very enjoyable.

Pours a clear hazelnut brown color with a subtle, eggshell colored head.

Smells of sugared, boozy raisins, spicy molasses and a note of milk chocolate.

Has a well carbonated, mineralic mouthfeel, which, despite the beer’s elevated abv gives it a pleasant refreshment.

Tastes of rustic bakers chocolate, earthy cinnamon and sweet licorice, together with a stony carbonation burst. Offers a nut forward middle part, together with caramel and a whiff of honey. Finishes with a noble, spicy dryness among rock sugar and cakey malts.

Solid with a pleasing depth, together with a profound malt backbone, establishing a well working balance.

Love this beer. One of my favorite Belgian imports. Pricy, but not as bad as the Deleriums or Chimays.

750ml bottle into a goblet. Coding hard to understand, but may have been bottled this year.

Splendid looking beer. Dark reddish brown body. Big creamy off white head persists in good form throughout, impressive given the abv, leaving a lot of interesting lacing.

Nice banana on the aroma. There is also something slightly floral which is not as pleasant.

On tasting, malty, banana, smooth, quite strong but not overly boozy. Not getting and dark fruit though.

Mouth full, finish warm slightly sweet banana.

Overall, not bad. Not quite as good as I expected, but an enjoyable drink on a snowy Pennsylvania night.
