English: This beer was a lovechild from start to finish. Born as a result of good times at Fanø Bryghus between a bunch of thirsty and ticking frenzy ratebeerians and the hospitable brewer family The Witter-Merrithews. The occasion was “Fanø Bryghus Slumber Party 2012” a really terrible excuse for a great barbecue, good beer, funny games, excellent company and….brewing a beer. The beer was developed as a joint venture with everybody allowed to join in. Then brewer FrumptyDumpty transformed the input into a functional recipe. Although brewed in the midst of the bright (well…) Danish summer we brewed a rich and potent beer for those darker days: a Belgian-style Quadrupel made with heather and rose hips. Contributors (one way or the other!): Brugmansia, Christian, Dedollewaitor, FrumptyDumpty, Papsoe, princesslala, Theis and thewolf.

tfredvik (1751) - Oslo, NORWAY - JUN 3, 2016
Deep brown, clear body with a small, beige head. Strong aroma of dark dried fruits, dark caramel, chocolate and Belgian yeast. Strong flavour with a more pronounced and very pleasant Belgian yeasty feel than the aroma, dark dried fruits, sweet caramel, dark caramel, alcohol and some chocolate in the back. Moderate to heavy sweet taste, with a light to moderate bitter, long-lasting finish. Full-bodied, oily texture. A very successful quad!

Cunningham (6957) - Halden, NORWAY - JUN 2, 2016
Powerful and wonderful quad. Mellow and balanced. Dangerously drinkable.
Almost black color with a fine thick tan head. Ok lacing. Good intensity in the aroma. Full body and a soft carbonation. Balanced mellow sweetness and a bit oily texture. Complex nice flavor with dried fruits, mild vinous, chocolate, dark malt and toffee.

Retrouve peu de côté de rose, et de bruyère, possible de l’age du fût?

Foffern (1678) - Bodø, NORWAY - MAR 21, 2014
Bottle at home. Pours a hazy deep reddish brown colour with a small, light beige head that fades fast. A sweet and a bit vinous aroma of dried fruit, leather, oak, alcohol, dried meat, chocolate and some red wine. Complex and pleasant. Tasteful and rich is also the flavour with addition of caramel and brown sugar. Maybe the alcohol is too much present. Some flowers in the aftertaste. Has a rich and silky mouth feel, and a light bitterness. A pretty complex and rich beer on the sweet side.
