COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Inspired by the Trappist brewers of Belgium, our heavyweight Quadruple tips the O.G. scales at 25 degrees P. Master Brewer, Daniel Carey, sourced the Brett yeast that boldly frames this refined and complex strong ale. First coddled in our Oak lager tanks and then slowly matured in bourbon barrels. This is a bold beer that sips like a refined cordial of nutmeg, dried cherries and vanilla. Perfect for lying down or sipping by the fire tonight. http://www.newglarusbrewing.com/beers/unplugged belgian quad.html

Ungstrup (28458) - Citizen of the universe, DENMARK - JUN 4, 2007
Bottled. An amber beer with a fast disappearing orange head. The aroma is sweet combined with a slightly acidic bret presence, and notes of fruit - especially peaches, and spices leaving it quite complex. The flavor is sweet malty with strong notes of fruit - again peaches being most dominant, combined with lighter notes of alcohol, wood, and spices, leading to a dry woody finish combined with a light acidity from bret, before the alcohol leaves a slight burn in the throat.

Papsoe (25094) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - JUN 5, 2007
(Bottle 35,5 cl) Courtesy of CaptainCougar. Clear, amber golden with an off-white head. The aroma is lightly acidic also presenting yeast, sweetish caramel and alcohol. Quite full-bodied with sweetish malts and fruit, notes of oak and a light sourness. No real bitterness. This is quite intriguing and quite unlike anything else Iíve tried. 310507

Hazy amber brown beer. Soft and dry palate. Very sweet toffee malt with a brief note of something fruity before a velvet punch of slightly spicy alcohol. Well joined up but a little over sweet.

kp (10886) - Woodstock, Georgia, USA - SEP 1, 2007
UPDATED: JAN 17, 2009
Date: April 22, 2007
Mode: Bottle
Source: Trade
Appearance: clear redish orange, fine beige head, touch of lace
Aroma: sweet fruity aroma with a bret infused mustyness along with a tart cherry woody character
Body: creamy body
Flavor: wild blend of flavors with fruityness and cobwebs from a Belgian cave supported by wooden beams, mild tartness invokes a cherry essence, the bret dries it out a lot but some sweetness still manages to sneak in with the fruity character, incredable complexity
Overall: will be a lot different every six months

Date: May 16, 2007
Mode: bottle
Source: tasting
picking up more sweetness along with the fruity character, less bret in this sample,

Aroma: 7/10; Appearance: 7/10; Flavor: 7/10; Palate: 8/10; Overall: 16/20
Rating: 3.8/5.0
Drinkability: 7/10
Score: **4

bhensonb (10361) - Woodland, California, USA - OCT 28, 2009
Bottle courtesy of allendodd. Cheers man! Pours a hazy darkish amber with a slight white head. Interesting aroma of dark fruits and kandi. Full bodied with creamy/frothy carbonation. Flavor is caramel with fruit. Mild spice. Think Iím getting some oak. Itís quad tending towards barley wine. Dellcious, but finishing slightly sweet. Brett? Maybe thatís whatís cutting the sweet. Itís like nothing Iíve ever had. Too bad itís retired.

Tmoney99 (10100) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - APR 21, 2007
Bottle shared at the Dilly Deli. Poured clear reddish amber with an averaqge white head that was mostly lasting with good lacing. Heavy complex tart fuirt and herbs and alcohol aroma. Medium to full body with a slick texture. Heavy balanced flavor with a medium bittersweet and small alcohol burn finish of moderate duration. This is a standout beer.
