COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlafly Quadrupel is, as its name implies, a serious beer. But don’t be intimidated. This fourth beer in our bottle-conditioned Belgian-style beer series has a rich, malty backbone that is generously balanced by select, fresh hops to create a luscious, smooth character. Sharing it with friends enhances the enjoyment, whether in front in front of a roaring fire or at the finest dinner party. Quadrupel will be available year-round, but in limited quantities, with the initial batch being 150 cases.

HomeBrewHawk (464) - De Soto, Kansas, USA - OCT 13, 2009
750 bottle served in a Chimay chalice. Bottle conditioned. Opens with a big pop. Pours a clear amber tinted gold. Lots of carbonation, but only a finger of off white head. Slightly spice aroma from yeast. A bit of sugar and a little alcohol in the aroma. Full bodied and smooth. First sip seems pretty sweet, but that goes away pretty quickly, and the beer settles down. Nice and malty with some more spice in the finish. Dangerously drinkable at 12%. Alcohol is well hidden. Nothing spectacular, but a good evening’s drinking.

Rciesla (5499) - Exit 15W, New Jersey, USA - OCT 12, 2009
Bottle. Pours a hazy amber brune body with some copper highlights and an off white frosty head. Huge warming etoh latent fruit, salty fruit, applejack with some spicy yeast character. Huge beer and fun to drink. Nice.

bblack99 (526) - Kansas City, Missouri, USA - SEP 27, 2009
Tasted 9/19/09 at the Black Clover Beerfest. Red-amber liquid, off-white lacy head. Sweetness in taste and aroma with figs and alcohol. 12% is tough to hide, and it’s quite apparent, especially served outdoors in moderate heat. Yeasty, doughy flavor pulls back the sweetness some, but doesn’t quite manage to balance things out.

shigadeyo (2962) - Harrison, Ohio, USA - SEP 22, 2009

9/09/2009: Schlafly Quadrupel Ale... Aroma: Fruity (pear, hints of raspberry), yeasty, and some date sweetness. Appearance: Deep honey color, quickly fading light caramel-colored head. Flavor: Malty, caramelized sugars, yeasty. Palate: Medium to medium-full, slightly creamy and chewy. Overall: Good, sweet, a bit boozy, nothing unique or memorable though.

1 Pt. 9.4 Fl. Oz. bottle ( 12.0% Alc./Vol.) shared by Tmoney99. Thanks Tom! Rating #24 for this beer.

vyvvy (3607) - Florissant, Missouri, USA - SEP 21, 2009
Pours amber / orange with a tan head. The aroma has brown sugar, toasted malt, earthy yeast, toffee, caramel and definite alcohol presence. The body is thick and slick with fairly frothy carbonation. The taste has much of the same as the aroma, but it is breadier. The finish has alcohol and is quite full and malty. A solid US version of the style.

Tmoney99 (10080) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 17, 2009
Bottle from Party Source. Poured a clear reddish brown color with an average fizzy off-white head that mostly lasted with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy tart fruit, Belgian yeast and alcohol aroma. Medium body with a smooth sticky texture and lively carbonation. Medium to heavy tart fruit sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. Solid complex brew.

Reddish amber pour with a thick white head. Nose is fruity: dates, figs, candi sugar and alcohol. Flavor is much the same: sweet and potent with a touch of bubblegum esters. BIG alcohol presence. Nice.
