Westbrook’s Belgian Quadrupel was a short-lived member of its special collection, going on tap almost exclusively at the brewery and ostensibly disappearing. A brewery tour stop in the barrel room indicates that most of this puppy has been aging ever since, and here’s your chance to sample the results. The Mourvèdre wine barrel should complement the massive dark fruit and malt components of the Quad quite nicely.

De tirador al CBC. Molt vinosa. Amb notes de vainilla i fusta. Molt ben equilibrada. Punt sour que li dóna una acidesa molt interessant. De lo millor que vaig provar al festival. Genial!

fiulijn (19387) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Black color with brownish head, compact. The aroma is dominated by a very nice vanilla, with sweet wood and traces of raspberry, and a hint of cheese. Good body strength, with some residual sweetness, dark caramel flavor, evident influence from red fruits, and a fair degree of acidity; yet, with a touch of vanilla, this manages to be smooth. Overall well balanced.
A very interesting brew, one that makes me happy I tried it.
Last opinion: the aroma is fantastic, the flavor a bit too much fruity.
A great beer.

mcberko (14690) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 7, 2013
On tap at CBC, pours an amber-tinged dark brown / near-black with a large tan head. Aroma of prominent red wine notes, some caramel sweetness, and dry bready notes. Flavour brings out very prominent red wine notes atop anything, and some dry dark fruits. Very vinous and dry fruity. The red wine notes don’t dominate as much as on the bourbon barrel edition. Complex and elegant. Great stuff.
