3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Corked and caged 0.75 litre bottle from 08 Oct 2012, Lot 002. Shared with Fin and Mat on 23rd Aug 2014 at Sophie’s Creperie. Dark brown with a red hue, tanned head. Malts lead the way in both the nose and taste with dark fruits showing in both the aroma and taste. A slight yeastiness in the flavouring as the beer warmed a little. It came across a bit sweet and sour in nature with the sweetness just about winning overall. I liked it.

Bottle courtesy of Black Haddock, cheers Jeremy! We had this at The Creperie, Market Hall, Shrewsbury, Saturday 23rd August 2014 in company of Mat, Loz, Jeremy and some of Jeremy’s family, Pours mahogany in colour with a light beige head. Tangy dark sticky fruits a bit of date perhaps. This is both spicy and a little yeasty. A twangy fruity sour edge. Its good. Aroma not too disimilar to Pannepot, in fact its really similar. A jolly decent beer, cheers Jeremy! A8 A4 T7 P4 Ov15 3.8

75cl bottle. Batch 3. Shared with Mathieu87 APPEARANCE: pitch black beer, nice small beige head. NOSE: lots of chocolate, some coffee, little vanilla even, dark fruits noticeable, some liquorice even. TASTE: coffee, dark chocolate, again little liquorice. Very good Quadrupel! Really like this beer! But is this really a quadrupel? Reminded me more of a stout though...

4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
Geproeft in brouwerij Maenhout (Meulebeke). Zeer mooie donkerbruine kleur. Zowel in het aroma, de smaak en de afdronk herken je de geroosterde mout. In het aroma nog toetsen van bosfruit. Het zoet, hopbitter mondgevoel heeft een lichte carbonatie en bevat tevens wat zoethout waarbij ook sporen van chocolade en caramel na. Dit alles is eveneens terug te vinden in de zeer goede afdronk. Een prachtig degustatiebier met waarschijnlijk lange bewaartijd.. Een echt kunstwerk!

Qantelaar is an amazing new Belgian beer.
Be aware, this beer is NOT a Quadrupel, as someone here under wrongly tried to believe us.
The one (3th. bacth) I tried was still brewed at Maenhout. The 5th. batch, which is still maturing today is brewed at Gulden Spoor.
I can tell you, his beer is a HIT !!! Such a dense flavour concentrations going on here. Malty rich, and pleasant roasty, perfectly in balance with the caramel malts and perfectly dosed hops.
No doubt, a beer I can recommend with full of my heart !
But .... not at all a Quadrupel, this to be precise.

3.5 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Clear black colour, beige head. Aroma of roasted malts, coffee, liquorice, drop and dried fruit. Bitter roasted malts flavour, light hops. Quite light carbonation, light liquorice (drop) in the finish.
Nice beer, but wouldn’t call it a quadrupel, it feels closer to dubbel and stout.

3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
DraughtFast gone yellow-beige head with a greenish sheen; brown-black beer. Liquorice, drop, bit coffeeish, dry smell. Dry, again coffee and liquorice, but with a nearly absent finish. Falls utterly flat - for a "quadruple"!! Tinge of sourness, CO². Falling flat to an empty finish - just some retronasal cocoa powder. A "quadrupel", deprived of aftertaste? D’uh!
