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.

Une bouteille de 75 cl partagée avec rodenbach99. Une superbe robe orangée sur laquelle une tête beige exhibe sa fantastique ténacité. Une dentelle installée qui meurt à petit feu. Un nez passablement complexifié avec des notes maltées caramélisées et mielleuses, du pain suret et des fruits de toute sorte qui présentent un côté givré et acidulé. Un goût évolutif de pain caramélisé, d’alcool épicé, de poivre et de fruits immatures. Un corps qui me semble être de moyenne densité. Des bulles au pouvoir nettoyant et une texture bellement huileuse. Une finale chaude et amère comme une liqueur monastique piquée par les fruits. Tout compte fait, une affaire solide et savoureuse.

750 mL Bottle. Pours a cloudy medium brown color with a big lively off-white head. Raisins, caramel, wood, malty, dark fruit aromas. Strong, malty, brown sugar, alcohol flavors. I thought I remembered liking this one better in the past. But it tastes better as you let it warm up a little bit.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a murky amber to copper with a dense but short tan head. I stored this on it’s side so I’m guessing this should actually be clear.
Aroma: The aroma is mild with crackers, brown sugar, apple cider and peppery spice. Complex, but restrained. Smells decent though.
Taste: The intro is very bready with a saltine crackers flavor. The flavor gets more intense with brown sugar and apple cider coming through pretty strong by the finish with only hints of alcohol. The finish lingers of a light spice that I find hard to describe, perhaps cinnamon and nutmeg? It’s subtle though and a mild alcohol presence lingers, warming my throat.
Palate: Full-bodied with semi-sharp carbonation, definitely pricks my tongue a bit.
Overall: This is a very solid quad, spicy, fruity and malty, complex and drinkable especially at 12%. This is drinkable, but I’m glad I’m splitting a bottle.

750 ml from State Line. Pours hazy bright coppery orange with frothy off-white head. Nose is funky, yeasty, fruity, with notes of cherry, prune, and cobwebby malts, Tastes very citric and floral, with mid-palate hops, some bitter tartness, cherry, heat, and lactic funkiness in the finish. Overall comes off a bit bitter for my tastes.

750 mL bottle with some age on it. Pours a dark copper color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dry fruits, nuts, spice. The taste is bread, spice, dates, dark fruits, toffee. Medium bodied, highly carbonated, warming alcohol. Nice beer.

First, let me say that foam leaked from the bottle the second the cap was popped, and it wouldn’t stop until we intervened and removed some of the beer from the bottle. On top of the large tan head that sits on top of the beer, the color is an opaque and cloudy copper with quite a bit of medium- to large-grain sediment in the bottom of the glass. The aroma is mostly boozy with hints of caramel malts and sour fruit, which doesn’t really hit the mark for being appealing, and the taste is quite sour, slightly sweet, and slight bitter, which almost makes up for how the nose doesn’t quite make you want to drink. Furthermore, the palate combines a full body, boozy and astringent finish, lively carbonation, and a thin texture, which leaves me a little confused and not that pleased.

Aroma does not feature typical Belgian yeast esters. Highly sweet aroma: sugar, candi sugar, and molasses. The beer is almost too sweet and doesn't feature any Belgian flavor profile that is true to a Belgian dark strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a classic quad, but a perfectly decent beer. Glowingly red-brown color, no head (tap). The usual raisin-plum notes of a quad are present but buried under a surprising sour note - not sure if it is by design, or an infected tap line...decent either way. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
