16oz chalice, on guest tap at Volo in Toronto.

This beer appears a hazy, dark apricot amber hue, with two fingers of puffy, thinly foamy ecru head, which leaves a swath of oncoming avalanche lace around the glass as it genially recedes.

It smells of apple, ripe pear, sweet wheat-tinged caramel malt, musty dark fruit, gritty candi sugar, and a smidgeon of warming alcohol. The taste is caramel/toffee malt, apple mush, generic melon, a bit of coriander/clove spiciness, waning black fruit esters, a subtle earthy yeastiness, and more very coy booze warming.

The carbonation is on the low side, but still tight and a tad fizzy, the body a decent medium weight, fairly smooth, and even a little slickly creamy. It finishes off-dry, and pretty clean, the fruitiness carrying on in a mild stumble, while the more or less subdued malt deals with a now threatening booziness, but in that playing hard to get sense.

Certainly a keep-you-warm-in-the-winter sort of beverage, this is, with the requisite memories of summer field fruit, and an adequate amount of deftly obscured booze to help suppress them. Wait, this is a Trappist brewery, so I suppose I must proffer a comparison to the standard bearers for the style, etc, etc. Ok, then - this is barely worthy of mentioning in the same breath as the Rochefort 10s of the world, but that's no big deal - sometimes a bit of scaled down complexity, and upticked drinkability is a good thing.

Big "Q" label, cellared for over a year. Bottle opens with a pop, pours a jeweled red-orange into a Westmalle goblet at 60º. Racing trails of carbonation can be seen in the center. After a sip the foam breaks and slowly ebbs away at one side. Slight musty cork aroma, with sweet brown sugar and caramel notes. Dried fruit flavors of raisin, dates, and prune blend with a sweet nutty almond finish and a vague touch of spice. Slight stickiness on the lips, and there is some minor earthy tobacco in the aftertaste. The feel is full and velvety, true trappist style. Not sure if it was aged too long or long enough, but the alcohol thankfully wasn't noticeable. Slighty more enjoyable fresh on tap (4.2).

Bottle into Rock Bottom pint glass. I had a hell of a time with the cork.

A: Pours a beautiful creamy thick head of amazing retention. Hazy gold, inviting colour. Very appealing.

Sm: Musty blend of esters, spice, malt, and yeast. Yeast scents are my favourite in trappist ales. This is no exception.

T: Cream-laced open to body of unusual build but nice balance, with a yeasty, hoppy finish. Hides its abv extraordinarily (dangerously!) well. It's a bold beer, even for a trappist quadrapul. Compared to other quads I've had, it seems a bit off (is there a "standard" quadrupel taste?).

Mf: Near perfect, except for a bit of must. It's difficult to brew with traditional methods and yeast and still avoid the musty effect, but other trappist ales manage to do it better than this one.

Dr: At 10% abv, it'll knock your socks off, but at 12 USD a bottle (in Denver, CO), it'll do a number on your wallet as well.

On tap at Ebenezer's the night after Night of the Funk - November 6, 2010. Served in a chalice.

The pour brings a nice moderate brown color with a bit of a crimson-garnet hue. Really nice off-white head with a good dosing of lace on the edges of the glass. The nose brings forward some nice dark fruit characteristics with dates and figs plus some light caramel. A bit of malt and plum plus some light brown sugar notes and a bit of alcohol.

The flavor is nice with a bit of malt sweetness and light booze. The yeast does a nice job creating some esters alongside caramel plus plums, dates, and other dark fruits. A really nice body with a bit of booze. Helps bring out the complexities of the brew. Drinks quite well and was the last Trappist brewery that I needed to try to finish off the list.

Reviewed from notes on 4/19

A - Poured out a light burgandy color with a small, tan, bubbly/soapy head. It left soapy trails of lace on the glass.

S - It smelled of dried fruit (pear & apple), spices and malt.

T - It the apple and pear flavors came through on first sip. Also, some spice notes kicked in. It had a smooth roasted malt flavor that added a biscuity feel.

M - It was soft and smooth with a warm alcohol presence. A medium to heavy-bodied beer.

D - This is a very good Quad. It's worth the price.

Pours a medium brown with some orange tints with a real nice big creamy head,aroma has a light sour cherry tinge and 10x sugar notes with some real light smokey/yeasty smell.I get a light green apple flavor wich I didnt expect,definently on the malty side but not overly sweet because there is some light hop bitterness.The best Holland beer I have had and only the third of the style I have had,very impresive.

A - One finger of off white head that leaves nice, thick lace as it recedes. The body is orange-brown and clear.

S - Yeasty banana, some spicy notes of clove, and lots of caramel.

T - The initial impression is like a caramel covered banana. Malty sweet, and a bit nutty in the middle. Toffee and some faint roasted malt in the finish.

M - Medium body, moderately high carbonation, and a somewhat dry finish.

D - The malt character is nice and complex, but I would like it to be a bit darker with some more intense yeast character. Reasonably drinkable for a beer of this weight.

2000/2001 bottling. Sparking blood orange beneath a creamy cap of gorgeous orange-ecru foam. Even though I rinsed out my crystal snifter just prior to the pour, blankets of delicate lace are still sticking to the glass. Beer with a double digit ABV isn't supposed to look like this. I'm thrilled so far.

I haven't had many quads yet, but I have to say I'm impressed by the rich complexity of a good quadrupel nose. This one is overflowing with dark malt and smells almost as much like concentrated black and red raspberries as Kuhnhenn Raspberry Eisbock. Talk about taking after one of the best. Actually, it's the other way around given when this one was brewed.

I've had this little 11.2 oz bottle for several years now, never dreaming what deliciousness lay within. I know that La Trappe is one of the seven Trappist breweries (and the only one that is outside of Belgium), but I still never expected to like this beer quite this much.

I'm still floored by how much Quadrupel tastes like raspberries and blackberries. The flavor profile also contains spiced raisins and plums swimming in dark caramel and melted chocolate bars. As it warms, I can appreciate leather and earthy hops. It's definitely on the sweet side of things, but I wouldn't change a thing. Drinking beer out of a snifter always makes me want to sip anyway. Although alcohol is noted, it's as soft and as unthreatening as a baby chick.

The mouthfeel can only be described as liquid velvet... or maybe a highly polished gemstone... or possibly summer weight silk. The only thing that keeps it from the 'mouthfeel hall of fame' is that it favors medium over full.

La Trappe Quadrupel has surprised the hell out of me. I've always considered tripels and BSDAs to be my favorite Belgian styles, but if I continue to drink outstanding quadrupels, they'll be right up there as well. I'm ecstatic to see how well this beer ages because I plan to stock up the next time I see it on the shelves. Highly recommended.

Sweet, sharp, and underlaid with dark bitterness. Dark amber in the New Belgium tulip with nice lacing. Fairly coarse carbonation in the mouth, but lots of it. Alcohol is a hot hammer on the throat. More of a liqueur than a beer, but reasonably amount of hops. Hugely fruity with raisins, toasted fruit cake, and dried figs. Nice nose of roasted barley. Sweetness seems overpowering at first, but the vast range of the Belgian complexity gives it a lot of interest. I thought it was quite sippable at refrigerator temp, though it changes as it warms slightly and the darker, burnt flavors emerge more.

750 ml bottle, corked and caged. Its slightly hazy deep amber body appears almost reddish in the glass; yet reveals golden highlights when held to the light. It's short but creamy off-white head slowly erodes to an average collar and some whispy surface foam. The nose is somewhat musty and lightly vinous with a candyish note and some mild caramel that rounds things out. It's gently zesty on the tongue with a very fine and natural carbonation atop it's medium/full body. The flavor is sweetish with a lightly vinous and juicy fruit character that exhibits red grape, plum, soft berries, and apple. It's well-balanced with firm bitterness; and it's alcohol is held in check at all times. It finishes dry with some noteable bitterness; a delicate wash of alcohol; and some mild, peppery alcohol spiciness. An interesting and satiating brew.
Koningshoeven Quadrupel:
This beer is very similar to the standard La Trappe Quadruple, although it displays some rougher fermentation characteristics and appears to be a bit sweeter. It pours a slightly hazy, deep amber body that appears almost reddish in the glass, yet reveals golden highlights when held to the light. It's short but creamy off-white head slowly erodes to an average collar and some whispy surface foam but leaves some thin lace as it goes. The nose is delicately fruity with a bright, candyish note and some mild phenolics that waver in the background. It's gently zesty on the tongue with a very fine and natural carbonation atop it's medium/full body. The flavor delivers a sweetish and juicy fruit character (soft berries, apple, plum) and some light caramel. It's well-balanced with a moderate bitterness; and it's alcohol is held in check at all times. It finishes dry, with some light phenols (higher alcohols with a green-apple and plastic-like character). Still, it's fermentation flaws are minimal, and would probably go unnoticed by most. A nice beer that's worth a shot.

11.2 ounce bottle - $5.29 at Total Wine & More in Kennesaw, Georgia.

Appearance: Clear, dark brown body with a reasonably well-sized, off-white head. Random bits of lacing on the way down.

Smell: Sweetish, earthly spiced, and ripe fruity notes all come together to harmoniously provide notes of candy, caramel-covered fruits, dark loaf bread, and even alcohol. Yes, even alcohol, friends.

Taste: Sweetish, dark maltiness with very, very light tastes of chocolate and even cinnamon-flavored Breakfast Blend coffee. Touch of dark breadiness. Hearty spread of gooey dark caramel. Dash of earthy spices, mainly clove. Another pinch of table sugar. Fruity tastes of green raisins, ripe figs, and green apples marinated in spiced rum. Touch of bitterness. Sweetish, earthy, warming finish.

Mouthfeel: Medium-full body. Medium carbonation. Smooth mouthfeel.

Drinkability: Worth a try. The world's greatest quadrupel? Heck no! A decent, okay-inducing quad? Sure.

I've been looking forward to trying this for some time. Superb, lightly spicy aroma with caramel malt and hints of honey. ABV well hidden. The light spicing in the nose is much more obvious in tasting. Rich and complex flavor but, unfortunately, it is just too sweet. On the other hand, the aftertaste is great.

750 ml bottle into chalice, bottled on 5/8/2013. Pours moderately cloudy orange copper color with a 1-2 finger dense off white head with good retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Spotty soapy lacing clings around the glass, with a moderate amount of streaming carbonation. Aromas of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, banana, clove, pepper, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, light caramel, molasses, herbal, floral, and yeast earthiness. Incredible aromas with fantastic complexity and balance of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate malt sweetness; with great strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, banana, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, light caramel, molasses, herbal, floral, clove, pepper, and yeast earthiness. Fair amount of earthy yeast spice on the finish; with lingering notes of raisin, plum, fig, pear, apple, banana, candi sugar, toast, biscuit, molasses, herbal, light caramel, clove, and yeast earthiness on the finish for a while. Incredible complexity of fruity/earthy yeast and moderate malt sweetness; with an awesome malt/yeast flavor balance and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Medium carbonation and medium-full bodied; with a very smooth, crisp, and lightly slick mouthfeel that is insane. Alcohol is very well hidden with only a light warming after the finish. Overall this is a world class quadrupel. All around incredible complexity and balance of bright fruity/spicy yeast esters and balanced malt sweetness; and extremely smooth to sip on for the ABV. An insanely delicious offering.

Poured from an 11.2oz bottle into a tulip glass.

A: The beer is a murky light brown color, with a short off-white head that fades slowly and leaves a thick lace on the glass.

S: The aroma contains Belgian yeast, caramelized malts, brown sugar, some spice and a touch of hops.

T: The taste starts with sweet flavors of caramel, brown sugar and a little bit of fruit and spice. Then a hearty malt character and some Belgian yeast breadiness comes in. The hops presence is mild and brings some balance. The after-taste is slightly sweet.

M: Crisp and smooth, medium body, medium carbonation, finish is slightly sticky.

O: Flavorful, goes down ok, not too filling, strong kick, decent representation of style, it’s a decent beer but there are better options in the style.

My friend brought this back from when she was in Europe, even though I think you can get it in the states. 750 mL cork and cage bottle. Best before 08-2011.

Poured into New Belgium Globe Glass.

Huge three finger pillow top head that leaves heavy lacing. Head is slightly tanned. The color is a beautiful robust copper.

Aroma is very complex. There is a lot of banana, raisin, cranberry, and clove smell going on for this beer.

Taste is very similar to the aroma. The raisin sticks out a lot more. There is also a carmel taste, as well as it being very fruity. The alcohol is also heavily present.

Mouthfeel is pretty clean and creamy. The alcohol is very strong which makes it hard to keep in your mouth for very long.

This beer is very filling, but tasty. I had a hard time finishing the 750, but it was too good not to. I highly recommend.

First had: bottle at Armsby Abbey, Worchester, MA

I slept on this beer for a while, but when my wife--in a very quad phase--ordered one at the bar, I finally broke down and shared it.

Poured a dark brown with a small but thick head that retained throughout the session. Sugary aroma, and bready with Belgian yeast. Very strong taste, as would be expected. Sweeter and more fruity than many quads I've had; caramel and brown sugar, plums and nectarines. Definite alcohol bite. Medium mouthfeel, well carbonated, and decently drinkable, but not in large quantities. The sweetness is not a bad thing, but I do prefer other quads to this.

A: The pour is a dark amber/brown color with a fluffy khaki colored head.

S: Sweet dark fruits (such as raisins, plums, and figs) and dark candi sugar make up the bulk of the aroma. Plenty of sweet caramel maltiness, too.

T: The flavor is of the same dark fruits that were present on the nose. A hint of spice and plenty of yeast that almost seems sour at points. Sweet malts and candi sugar, too.

M: The body is medium with a lively carbonation, but not quite as fine as some other Belgian beers.

D: A nice beer, pretty easy to drink for such a high ABV beer, and not really any discernible alcohol on the flavor or nose, either.

I picked this up at the newest Giant Market & Craft beer cafe in Harrisburg on Linglestown Rd. Corked & caged bottle into a cervoise chilled.

The color is deep amber with light cream cap w/ slight chill haze and goo lace/head retention. The smell is very appealing to me with abundance of malt sweetness in the aroma with mild floral hop note and yeast phenolic with mild bready element and slightly honey like accent. The feel is very good with high carbonation level and strong full body with malt heft and drying alcohol on the palate with crisp finish that has a lingering spice texture.

The Quad tastes like some toasted malt is present with the yeast adding a clove accent with mild honeylike tinge and floral hop element adding to the complexity with subtle alcohol in the taste and the strength is not all that apparent with malt providing the majority of the flavor with a nice effervescent yeast that leads to a dry mineral tinged finish. A great Belgian and originator of the Quad style I have been enjoying this for over a decade I am happy to drink this on occasion and it is very drinkable for the style.

Pours a very effervescent caramel with 1+ finger of khaki head. Good head retention & lacing

S: Juicy fruit, rubber bands, bubblegum & breadfruit

T: Huge fruittyness, dates, figs & ghost booze up front. White grapes, juicy fruit & some phenols, plus pears, leather & some mushrooms as this warms. Finishes oaky, with some banana peels, fruitty & with a little booze kiss. almost pulled a 4.5

MF: Slick, effervescent & a bit thin for the style, more malt depth needed to really vault this into great status for quads.

Drinks pretty easy for the style & ABV, a good take on the style

A: Pours a clear dark amber to medium brown in color with a fair amount of sediment in suspension. The beer has a two finger tall creamy light beige head that reduces to a thin film covering the entire surface of the beer with a slightly thicker ring at the edges of the glass. Significant lacing is observed.

S: Moderate to strong aromas of sweet malts, dark fruits (raisin), and candi sugar. There is a very light presence of spices and some hints of alcohol.

T: There is quite a bit of complexity to the flavors of this beer but it does follow the smell fairly closely. The beer starts out with the caramel/toffee malt sweetness. After that, the more cloying sweetness of the dark fruits (raisin) comes out followed by a very light presence on spices.

M: Medium bodied with moderate to heavy amounts of carbonation. Slightly syrupy due to the heavy sweetness.

O: This beer is quite enjoyable but it much more the sipping beer than one that is easy to drink. The alcohol is not as well hidden as I expected, making this take a little more effort to drink.

Poured into a La Trappe chalice bought in the Christmas gift pack. Pours a deep amber color, murky amber with a light beige tan head fine even Belgian style lacing. Aroma a dish of fruit in a cornacoupia style setting, with mild spices from the Belgian yeast. Awesome amounts of dark fruit soaked in alcohol big malt layers blended wth the balance of Beligan yeast strains. Carbonation is medium bodied effervescent carbonation flows smoothly goes down so easy, excellent big Belgian style quad. Drinkability is incredible smooth easy going I can't believe my senses this is smooth big beer at it's best.

Bottle shared by jayhawk73. Thanks Jeff.

The beer appears a rusty orange color. Moderately hazy with a light tan head that leaves ample lacing on the goblet.

The aroma offers fruit, yeast, malt, citrus, berries. While the aroma is pleasant enough, I find it very uncharacteristic of a Belgian quad.

A tad sweet, with plenty of fruit and yeast. Alcohol really emerges in the flavor, a bit more than I prefer. Sweetness grows as I make my way through the beer. Lingering alcohol presence.

Medium to full bodied with relatively high carbonation.

I have had every Trappist quad multiple times, and this one is my least favorite. Still, a decent beer and worth a try.

This poured with a thick whitish/tan head. The color was a honey-like golden yellow. In fact, it had a very sweet nose that approached that of honey. There was a thick syrupy mouthfeel to it. It was also sweet in the mouth with a muted honey flavor underlying the general sweetness. I noted a taste of licorice or anise on the finish. The final pour was as thick as gelatin with suspended yeast throughout. I cannot say that it was unenjoyable, but sweetness just isn't my thing and so I would not be too quick to reach for a second one.

Poured into glass chalice:

Pours mahogony with scarlet hues. A one-finger creamy head soon becomes a lasting thin cover. Some lacing sticks to glass.

The smell of brown sugar and raisins/prunes soon gives way to tart (lemony/orangey?) fruits. Hints of peppery alcohol.

The taste is of candy-like sweetness balanced by fruity tartness. A mixture of sugar-coated fruits, ranging from prunes to orange and lemon, hitting a few tropical fruits along the way. Finishes with coriander and a warming, peppery alcohol. Alcohol is noticeable, but controlled and adds a nice, spicy touch.

The feel is creamy/coating and syrupy. A light medium body has a nice texture. Spiciness and fruitiness linger on the tongue. Sweetness, with a touch of tartness, hold on into the aftertaste.

This is a luxurious, rich, sipping treat from Belgium.

330 mL bottle poured into a Kate the Great glass.

Appearance - Deep amber pour that froths more than I'd really like it to. Looks nice, but doesn't even fit in my oversize snifter. First world problems. Beautiful fluffy cream head that settles to a nice pillow atop the beer.

Smell - You can smell the bananas as it pours out of the bottle. Spicy. Cloves and cinnamon. Missing the fruitiness that I love in quads.

Taste - Much fruitier here. The spices are restrained until the finish, though. Caramel malts and brighter dark fruits, if that makes sense. Like raspberries with some depth. Maybe raspberry jam. Sharp alcohol bite in the finish. Dry but not arid.

Mouthfeel - It's medium bodied. Extremely sharp booze in the back. It's harsh on the throat. Strange, as I have never noticed it on tap before.

Overall - Good flavors. Maybe a little different from really great Belgian quads. The fruitiness is a little lacking and the alcohol is intense. Still enjoying the hell out of this, though.
