Qantelaar is the first beer of brewery "d’Oude Maalderij". 4 guys with a passion for craft beer founded the brewery in 2011.

Since then, we try to design and improve our recipes in order to create artisanal Belgian craft beers. The "Qantelaar" is created with 5 malts, a bit of candy sugar, 2 hops and ferments in the bottle. We use 30% more ingrediënts than a regular brown beer which gives it a great body and taste. We don’t add any herb, spice or chemical compound in the traditional Belgian brown strong beer.

Try to get a hold of it and enjoy the taste of what a good craft beer should taste like.

Dare to taste, learn to enjoy!

Martinus (2630) - Nijmegen, - FEB 5, 2013
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.

BlackHaddock (3183) - Shropshire, ENGLAND - FEB 12, 2014
Fourth glass on a 0.2 glass flight in La Trappist, Brugge on 30th Jan 2014. Pours a dark brown colour with a good foaming beige head. This is a fairly sweet brew, the nose gives it away and the taste confirms the fact. Mild chocolate notes blend in with caramel and dark fruit esters within the aroma while a liquorice feel arrives with those aforementioned smells in the taste. Complex and interesting, a very pleasant strong semi-sweet brown beer (my sweet tooth wins again).

Een zeer lekker bier,met een donker bruine kleur. Een heerlijke neus en een ietwat zoete aroma en smaak met een licht bittere toets in de afdronk. Dit is een bier die jong kan gedronken worden al is het raadzaam enkele exemplaren te kunnen bemachtigen om die dan te laten agen.

Abijen (1155) - ’s-Hertogenbosch, NETHERLANDS - JUL 6, 2013
Pours a dark brown beer with a not very long lasting head. Smells like coffee and a bit roasted. Tastes licorice and medium sweet. Too sweet. High on the carbo. Bit too high.

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!
