COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A rich and bitter-sweet strong Belgian ale made with barley malt, wheat malt, caramel syrup, muscovado sugar and a little bit of British chocolate malt for color. The hops are all German and provide bitterness and spiciness to balance the fruity yeast. This ale has been matured for a full 6 months before release, to integrate the powerful flavors. Ølfabrikken Quadrupel is of course unpasteurized, unfiltered and refermented in the keg and bottle like all of our beers.

Comments: Sweet, malt-focused Belgian strong with enormous toasty caramel flavours, more than well contained alcohol and a rich, full, foamy palate. More great stuff from Christian.

fiulijn (14298) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - AUG 6, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage 2007
Hazy light amber color. Very powerful and malty brew, well done, warming, strong body.

yngwie (13127) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - JUN 20, 2007
Draught at Københavnske Øldage. Served reddish-golden, almost clear, and with a small beige head. Heavy on the nose, with fruits, dried fruits, malt, sweetness and raisins. Yes, I know raisins are dried fruits, but after a good sniff, the raisins shines through. Quite sweet, full mouthfeel with malts and dried fruits. The finish is lasting and sweet, and some alcohol is present as well, but not much for a beer at 11% ABV. It’s a shame the distribution for the beers from Ølfabrikken are so lousy. (070511)

MesandSim (7119) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 16, 2007
A Mes rate: Draught at Ølfestival 2007. Absolutely bonkers beer. Dark hazy amber colour. Aroma of hops, sweet grapes and coca cola. Flavour is just madness. Like drinking a very harsh, alcoholic, thick and stupidly sugary kriek. Syrupy dried fruit notes and some delicate spice around the edges. It’s all too much truth be told but it’s a hell of an experience that I would heartily recommend.

Ølfestival 2007. On tap. Pours a clear light brown with a large off-white, diminishing head. Beautiful lacings. Quite sweet with heavy aromas of prunes, dates and syrup. Full bodied and kind of creamy. Soft carbonation with a longish, chalky finish.
