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.

I loved the aroma when I opened it. Fruity wine like, very nice bouquet. The flavor though was a bit of a let down. Malty, caramel with a bit of a metallic taste. After it warmed a little, the metallic taste was gone. Maybe it was something on the glass, I don’t know. Nice beer.

bottle - Pours hazy amber and smells of dark fruit and Belgian yeast. The flavor is sweet malt with caramel and dark fruit. The alcohol is definitely present but it’s not a strong flavor. Smooth and full bodied, this brew is a nice slow drinker.

750 back from Nashville on my last trip there. First impression is of a fruity, earthy, dirty, malty and smooth drink. Sadly though it lacks a bit of complexity you often get from some of the belgian versions of this style. Pours a murky brown with a slight red hue. Aroma is earthy and slightly wild from the yeast. Red fruit flavors and some chocolate malt working in the background. A gritty texture to finish everything off.

Pungent cider vinegar nose, with caramel struggling to break through, butterscotch also present. Cloudy ochre, fine floaties, thin head. Intensely sweet and sour initially. Apples, cherries, and plum become more discernible at midpalate, with the latter most prominent. Apple core and grape skin finish. Medium body, harshly fizzy. All the complexity and strength I expected, fairly drinkable a little at a time. Not quaffable, but not a chore.

Appearance: Pours a cloudy dark amber with a white film that subsides to nothing.

Aroma: Plum, dark sugar, spicy fruity yeast.

Taste: Sweet booze (an after dinner cordial), burnt sugar, white pepper, spicy hot finish.

Mouthfeel: Spicy, full bodied and prickly.

Overall: Really nice, very bold, flavorful with a great mouthfeel. One of Schlafly’s best offerings.

750 ml bottle served in a tulip. Pour is red highlighted amber with 3 fingers of foamy off-white head on top; head retention is above average and there is a bit of lacing as well. Nose is apricot, pineapple, Belgian yeast, cloves, and a bit of banana. Taste is initially yeast, apricot and malt. This is followed by a lovely mixture of spice, yeast, and light apricot that comprise the finish. This is a tasty Quad, not my favorite, but definitely worth a taste.

750ml Bottle: Kinda strange aroma of friend chicken, Belgian yeast, banana, light orchard fruits, and some wood. Poured amber in color with a medium-sized, creamy, loose, beige head that diminished but lasted throughout. Flavor is heavily sweet. Tastes of Belgian yeast, slight banana, sugar, light alcohol, nuts, toasting, slight brown sugar, orchard fruits, slight hops, and some Belgian candy. Medium body. Average texture. Average carbonation. Sugar, Belgian yeast, nuts, toasting, light orchard fruits, round out the finish. 12%ABV is noticeable in the flavor, but not hot.

Indra (2595) - Overland Park, Kansas, USA - NOV 1, 2010
750ml bottle, aged for about one year. Lightly sweet, bready, fruity, floral aroma, with notes of apricot, orange, melon, toasty malts, doughy yeast, toffee and faint spice. Dark fiery amber color with a lasting, pillowy, ivory head. Flavor is predominantly sweet and malty, with suggestions of brown sugar, faint cocoa, estery yeast, dried pineapple, green grape, nut, dried herbs, mild spicy bitterness and just a hint of alcohol towards the finish. Very smooth with a creamy effervescence on the palate and a touch of lingering warmth, with a hugely full body. A bit unconventional but perhaps the best Old World similarity would be that of De Koenigshoeven. Really pretty nicely done overall, however.
