A unique Trappist beer that is even put to rest sorted by year in the cellars of the abbey for further fermentation. The strongest beer of La Trappe with a beautiful amber colour. The warm taste is full and well-balanced. A little bit sweet and pleasantly bitter. La Trappe Quadruple is also fermented in oak barrels. Since 2008, we also age La Trappe Quadrupel in oak barrels. This gives the oak-aged Trappist beer an even fuller taste with a special wooded scent, which is comparable to wood-aged red wine. Starting June 2010 La Trappe Oak Aged is available in bottles of 37,5cl and exclusively for sale at the store at the brewery. 10% vol. alc., pouring temperature 10-14 ºC

This is not beer, this is bottled joy.
Once you've had this beer, every other beverage you ever consume will be measured against it, and will fall, far, far short of the heights of La Trappe Quadrupel. If you read the label, you will find the Quadrupel refers to the relative quantity of hops used in manufacture. What the label doesn't tell you is that it also indicates how many times more awesome this beer is compared to any other. So you open the bottle, and are greeted with a satisfying "pop" of the cork, and a fitting outpour of co2 fog. Pouring into a glass reveals a rich bronzed shade, reminiscent of the Auburn-tainted locks of many a femme fatale. The aroma is full and intense, filling the senses, and providing an exciting level of anticipation to the taste to come. And what is this taste? I can't articulate it and ever hope to do it justice. Just buy some an try it. A happy tippler.
