    Great beer to sip with the woman of your dreams in your favorite bar. But coming back down to earth I'm at home poring it out of a bottle. Fruity flavour of apple and banana, a little spice, caramel with a metalic tang. Good quad but we know there's better.

    Pours out the color of maple syrup with a massive foam head. The aroma is mild but pleasant. The mouthfeel is rich and thick. The flavor is semi-sweet and complex and boy howdy the 10% abv warms up your chest.

    Pours a pretty persistent thick foamy light brown head. Has a dark cloudy amber appearance. Aromas are of earth hops and bready malts, slightly yeasty. Has nutty flavours and resin type hops with hints of caramel and toffee. Mouthfeel is warming and a bit chalky, medium bodied and fairly lively carbonation. Alcohol taste is pretty noticeable. Finish is a bit of mild bitterness. Wasn't really blown away but still a good brew.

    Hazy darker ruby brown color with solid off-white foam slowly reducing and sticking to glass. Some fruit tones, but also caramel, still bitter and strong in alcohol. A good beer and the only Abbey Beer in Holland.

    The aroma of bananas are very prominent! Just pouring into a glass, the fruity smell just fills the air. Looks great, mouthfeel pretty good, flavor, not as full as the aroma, but not a sloucher. To me, the world's best beers are quadrupels, with authentic trappist quads like Rochefort 10 holding the top spot as the greatest drink in the world, this La Trappe does justice to the 'Trappist Quad' lineage. Highly recommended for all beer enthusiasts to seek out and sample, and if it's on tap, drink it over anything else!

    La Trappe Quadrupel is a sweet beer. Because of the alcohol percentage it tastes really sweet with fruity hints. The colour is amberlike en when served in the original La Trappe glass it looks great. Small foam head finishes the presentation. This beer needs to be enjoyed slow.

    @ Capone's, 10 oz. draft into a snifter Poured a dark, muddy amber with a one-finger head. There's a lot going on in the nose - pepper, brown sugar, raisins, plum, cherries, apple with a bready, malt combining to create an almost fruitcake-like backbone. The taste is sweetness of the dark fruits hit first (cherries, raisin, plum), the malt and breay foundation and then a light hop background, especially in the finish that makes this complex and delicious. Mouthfeel is medium and smooth. While this was served too cold, I allowed it to sit long enough to get more of what was a very tasty, very complex sipper - good thing at 10%. I will seek this out again absolutely.

    I will say that I was not expecting as much from the Trappist beer because it is not talked about nearly as much as some of the others but this was a great beer it pour a redish brown with a creamy colored head that hangs around. It has a nice sweet taste and it is a hearty filling beer with a nice suptle alcohol burn.
