Lothore (556) - California, USA - APR 26, 2014
A -pours a deep ruddy brown hue with little to no head. S- toffee, booze, burnt caramel, prune, fig, raisin, grape T- dark fruit, raisin, toasted bread, caramel up front with an untamed alcohol bite on the back end followed by residual sweetness. M- medium bodied with medium to low carbonation. D- have been holding on to this for years and there is still deep, untamed alcohol on the back end and a little sweetness that borders on cloying. Very interesting brew that I loved sticking my nose in but ultimately this beer was one that I should have shared.

Bottle 2009 vintage poured a clear reddish brown with a lingering ring of tan foam. Aromas of toffee, prunes, sherry, raisins and carmel. Palate was medium bodied and smooth. Flavors of toffee, sherry, plum, raisins and light carmel with a smooth lingering dark fruit finish.

PhillyCraft (3441) - Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA - FEB 17, 2013
2009 Bottle. Pours a brownish red murk with no head or lace. Notes of wet wood, toffee, plums, figs, dates, english malt. Thomas hardy like, so balanced and complex rich a lingering finish. Drinking amazing right now.

Johnsense (856) - - FEB 12, 2013
Deep reddish/brown pour, no head, very low carbonation. Aroma of fig, raisin, plum, slight sugar, and lots of yeast. Taste is similar -raisin, yeast, plum, fig, slight bit of booze, a bit of toffee, slightly woody. Fairly smooth, again no carbonation. Some warming from the booze. April 2009 bottle. The booze has died down on this - Probably would have suited me better to drik it last year.

phaleslu (6836) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - JUL 6, 2012
12 oz. bottle shared by Keir- thanks, Keir! April 2009 bottle. Pours a murky amber color with no head. The aroma has a lot of Belgian yeast character, with muddled fruits (plums, figs), nuts, candi sugar, and sweet, doughy malts. Flavor of sweet malts, caramel, sugar, dark and dried fruits, leaves, and a bit of toasted chocolate. Medium-bodied, with low carbonation; basically flat, with a smooth mouthfeel. Not bad.

BelgianBeerGal (3242) - Panama City, Florida, USA - MAR 13, 2012
Traded bottle marked April 2009. This was complex and big. Boozy aroma with Belgian yeast smells. Tons of sweetness from the sugar at first but then I swear it finishes with notes of coffee and toffee. Maybe overly sweet but very unique.

jrob21 (2674) - Atlanta, Georgia, USA - FEB 2, 2012
12oz bottle from a trade a while ago. Pours a muddy brown color and the carbonation has disappeared if it was even there at all. A definite sipping beer. This one was a little to far on the soy sauce side for me. Lots of plum prune and molasses as well. Big body, big malt. As you would expect from a quad. Decent sweetness.

cakanator (452) - South Hadley, Massachusetts, USA - NOV 27, 2011
12oz bottle. Pours a darker brown hue, off white head. Super sweet aromas almost candied, brown sugar, boozy. Palate is way too cloyed with a raisin sweetness, seems slightly oxidized, almost sherry like. Sweetness up front and sweetness in the finish, too much for me. Very one sided and the ABV is potent. I’m not sure what time would do to this one.

glennmastrange (2324) - hobe sound, Florida, USA - SEP 23, 2011
Bottle. Heavy malt aromas of cookie, roasted and caramel, heavy cooked orange for the hops, moderate dough for the yeast with notes of raisin, date, tawny port, toffee, brown sugar and alcohol. Head is just a few bubbles at the begining, light reddish brown, with no lacing and is fully diminishing. Color is muddy, red/brown. Flavor starts heavily sweet and lightly acidic, then finishes moderately to heavily sweet, lightly acidic and moderately bitter. Palate is medium to full, syrupy, and the carbonation is almost flat. It finishes moderately alcoholic with a a chewy and sticky feel. Not very good to look at, but this Quadrupel has bold and complex aromas, and flavors that dance all over you mouth.
