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.

This is a red brown beer w/ a ring of head. It has a fruity cherry nose w/ a bit of banana to it. It is big and heavy and quite sweet. The finish is earthy bitterness. I found even a small pour of this rather hard to get through.

TheAlum (6119) - Aurora, Illinois, USA - JUN 23, 2014
Draft on tap at RBSG Brewers Dinner at Dressels (St. Louis, MO). Pours a deeper amber brown hue, good deeper hazy dark middle with some gentle orange glow on the edges with frothy offwhite head, mellow tannish ring that sits atop and laces small. Aromas are richer, nice carmelized and dark fruit, touches of plum, caramel and gentle spiciness. Mellow Belgian yeast, some gentle prune and plum, gentle warmth. Initial is fuller bodied showing caramel and plum. Gentle yeastiness, faint spice hits with A firm warmth as it goes down the throat. Middle is a bit toasty, carmelized and caramel. Backend is a bit spicy, warm with touches of plum, touches of toast and gentle faint vanilla. Mellow dark fruit, plum and gentle yeastiness, mellow warmth finishes us out. Tasty, a bit big but really well done. Yeast and fermentation is on point. Not my style but a very nice beer.

Bottle. Pours a hazy deep amber with a tan head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has a nice dark fruit with sweet grains, candied sugar, Belgian yeast and some pear underlying. Flavor has a nice peace and sweet grain note up front with growing candied sugar and Belgian yeast.

Wow. A moderate to intense fig and dried fruit character. Lots of alcohol warning and booze but not too hot. Overall very good

Bottle. Hazy gold with a big off white head. Aroma is green apple and caramel. Taste adds candi sugar and butterscotch. Very sweet but tasty. Sticky palate and long finish. Not bad.

MartinT (8281) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 19, 2014
My Bottom Line:
Bready malts and quirky fruitiness make way for alcohol burn in this sweet and simple Quadrupel.

Further Personal Perceptions:
-A sheet of foam tops the dark amber.
-Mild tomato allusions disappoint.
-Effervescence feels soft due to the relatively high level of residual sugars.
-Specialty malts could have delivered more nuances.

Bottle.
