COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlafly Quadrupel is, as its name implies, a serious beer. But donít 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.

Patrickctenchi (3446) - Coxís Knob, columbus, Indiana, USA - APR 18, 2012
Pours deep amber-red with a thick tan head. Aroma is strong, sweet fruit, caramel...vinous. Taste is swet malts,dark fruits, (plum)...caramel. Very sweet, sticky and thick. Alcohol content is well evident....best to sip slowly. Very nice...would be great outside in winter by a fire.

kdm1984 (628) - Missouri, USA - APR 5, 2012
UPDATED: APR 25, 2012 Pours deep orange with nice head that fades well. Rich orange, fruity, alcohol smell. Fruity, orange, super alcohol burn flavor with tangerine aftertaste. Smooth other than the obvious 12% ABV alcohol burn. Pungent citrus flavor and scent. Nice slurpy mouthfeel.

seymour (1401) - Maplewood, Missouri, USA - FEB 21, 2012
Tasted at the 2nd STL Ratebeer Gathering. Poured a clear, reddish copper color with a thin, persistent layer of bubbles. Aromas of mild malt, caramel, little hops, alcohol, light Belgian yeast phenols: pepper, clove, bay leaf, maybe even a little bubble-gum as it warmed. Rich malt sweetness, some brown bread, toast, faint raisins and plums, perhaps less complexity and more hops bitterness compared to true Belgians. Medium body and carbonation, sharp tartness in mouthfeel, almost medicinal finish. Good not great.

Sampled at the StL RB gathering. It poured a hazy orange brown color with a small beige head. The aroma was of caramel, bread and some raisin notes. The taste was of raisins, caramel, bread and some big yeasty flavors with a nice alcohol finish. A very nice Quadrupel

Glouglouburp (5944) - Montreal, Quebec, CANADA - FEB 2, 2012
In short: Brown sugar and booze andÖ well, thatís about it. Brutal and boring
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when approximately 1 year of ageÖ I think
The look: Cloudy dark amber body, lots of small particles, medium beige head with medium retention
In long: Nose has nail polish remover, uber-sweet candies, yeast esters. Nothing exciting in this aroma, I could tell it would be a simplistic boozy sweet beer even if the taste is a little less brutal than what the aroma suggests. A lot of crunchy caramel, a lot of brown sugar, booze, more brown sugar, a small slice of sugary raisin pie, more brown sugar, yeast, more booze and more brown sugar. Not much of the richness and fruitiness that Iíve come to expect from a real Abt. Carbonation was way too aggressive but on the other hand it probably helped to make the beer more drinkable by covering some its sweetness and booziness. Overall this beer was just way too sugary sweet and too boozy for me. Thatís a bottle I should not have purchased, and when I realized I had made another bad purchase I exclaimed "Whatís wrong with me?" and then my wife had time to list 11 different things before I could tell her it was a rhetorical question.

Pours a hazsy ruby color with an average head that quickly diminishes. Aromas include a toffe malt with perfume hops. Heavy boozy notes with strawberry and rasbery. Medium bodies with lively carbonation. Starts moderately sweet up front with light acidity and light bitterness. Good quad!

Bottle. †Pours amber with thin off white head. †Aroma of dark fruits. †Taste of caramel, toffee, and Belgian yeast. †Dark fruits in the flavor as well. †Has plenty of raisins, prunes, and molasses in the finish. †Pretty boozy. †Thick mouthfeel. †Definite sipper for a cold day. †Nice alcohol burn in the end. †Pretty good.

alcaponejunior (438) - Texas, USA - DEC 25, 2011
UPDATED: SEP 23, 2012 Pretty good looking beer, orange to red and a bit hazy, good head and lacing. Great fruitiness with all the dark fruits represented, with a bit of caramel malt and no shortage of spices. A touch boozy but what do you expect with a 12% brew. Delicious and well worth trying.

DavoleBomb (1467) - Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 5, 2011
Poured into a goblet. 3.0 A: Moderately hazed amber color. Just a half finger of frothy off-white head that fell quickly and left no lacing. 3.0 S: This is super plummy with a strong vinous character. Dates and fig behind that. Surprisingly lacking the telltale Belgian yeast spiciness. Sweet and boozy. 3.0 T: As expected, the taste is quite vinous as well. Again, tons of plum with dates, fig, raisin, and prune. A good bit of caramel, toastiness, and even some molasses notes. Again, a bit too sweet and definitely too boozy. 2.5 M: Heavier medium body. The amount of carbonation is fine, but itís lacking the spritziness that I love in a quad. Reasonably creamy, but a bit too thick and chewy. 2.5 D: This isnít too bad, but I really donít like the vinous character and the mouthfeel is a total turn off.
