COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
As its namesake suggests, Quadrophenia is a Belgian style quadruple ale. We ferment Quadrophenia using Trappist ale yeast, which produces the spicy, phenolic flavors sometimes mistaken for added spices. The unique characteristics of caramel donít come from the Pale and Munich malts, but from the introduction of Coconut Palm Sugar used in the brewing process.
Hops: Czech Saaz, Magnum
Malt: Pale, Munich, Coconut Palm Sugar

bhensonb (11260) - Woodland, California, USA - NOV 5, 2012
Bomber from Bine & Vine. Pours clear copper with a foamy off-white head. Smell is clean and rather floral. Caramel backbone. Full bodied. Flavor is yeast/spice, banana ester, caramel, kandi, and some medium dark fruit. This is a very clean and pleasing drink. Heat may be present, but itís not getting in the way of anything. Sort of like adding to the yeast/spice. The finish is nearly dry. This stuff is way too drinkable.

brokensail (11089) - Orange County, California, USA - SEP 4, 2012
Pours a dark amber color with a finger of off-white head. Bread and toasted malt aromas along with lots of dark fruit and banana. A nice raisin sweetness and some hints of spice. The flavor has a lot of toffee, bread, and caramel to go with the banana and raisin. The spice notes on the palate are a bit more pronounced than on the nose, mostly nutmeg and clove. Nice full body on this.

GT2 (8510) - San Diego County, California, USA - JUL 3, 2013
Tap at the brewery tasting room. Pours a low haze deep orange with weak foam. Nose is heavy DMS/vegetal, something like Chinese orange chicken with broccoli, perhaps more beefy like Chinese take out orange beef. Taste is cloying to the max. Undrinkable. Way too much sugar.

Ibrew2or3 (6990) - Tempe, Arizona, USA - MAR 1, 2014
22oz bomber pours with a crystal clear copper body that has thin gold edges and supports a nice looking tan head of foam. The aroma offers up sweet malts, booze, plums, dates, Belgian candi sugar, a touch of spics and then a slight bacon meat smokiness. The taste begins smooth and sweet with sweet malts, plums, dates and candi sugar mixed with a subtle bacon like smokiness. To midway this picks up additional notes of booze and some modest cloves to coriander spiciness. Nice quad that is young and a bit rough around the edges. A little cellar time might pull it together and round off the rough parts.

5000 (6300) - Hardened Liver, Washington, USA - MAY 17, 2014
Botle:   Uh oh, may not be able to finish this one, and Iíve been poured only half the bottle.   Sweet, very bready, cloying, with a slight sweet vegetable tinge.   A bit odd.   Not really dark pitted fruit, caramel, or toffee.   Despite being cloying, body and mouthfeel are moderate.   Sweet finish, very sweet.   Has a thick spiciness to it thatís not bright, but heavy.   Otherwise extremely bready and sweet.   A bit difficult, but I finished my glass.   A whole bottle would be tough tho.
