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.

tronraner (2459) - Walland, Tennessee, USA - SEP 30, 2010
750 mL bottle. Pours a hazy orange red with long-lasting khaki head. The aroma is toffee and caramel with some musty notes, cherry, prune, clove, rotting banana, orange, and toasted pecans. The flavor is rich with caramel and slight toffee. It is definitely on the sweet side, but is kept in check by some earthy hops and spicy yeast notes. Some leather, clove, and orange zest notes catch my attention. The finish is bready and semi-sweet. There is a little bit of alcohol warmth in the aftertaste, but it is very well masked. Not bad.

phaleslu (7063) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - SEP 20, 2010
Draft sample at Hop in the City 2010. Pours a cloudy gold color with a small bone white head. Aroma of sweet malts, toffee, peppery spice, alcohol, nectarines, apricots, and candi sugar. Flavor of caramel, sweet malts, yeast, alcohol, apricots, candi sugar, and citrus. Medium-full bodied, with a syrupy mouthfeel and moderate carbonation. Pretty damn sweet and malty. Reminded me almost of an amped-up tripel.

Strykzone (5211) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - SEP 19, 2010
750 bottle bought at the Tap Room. Reddish brown doesn’t quite describe the appearance but it is the best I can do. A decent tan head. So much alcohol in this beer! Flavor is very big fruit. It is something between citrus and dark. Prunes, and plums, but so much more. Nice malt and some yeast along with that fruit. That big alcohol is tasted throughout. I wish it were much smaller. Flavor is sometimes prickly and sometimes powdery. That fruit sells this beer. It is so tasty!

ApisAles (1576) - Greenbelt, Maryland, USA - SEP 3, 2010
Dark orange pour with an off-white head. Aroma is figs, fruit, some spicem a little bit of port maybe? Flavor is similar. Fruit, spice. Alcohol was not present, but it did leave you feeling pretty warm. Good beer.

BelgianBeerGal (3280) - Panama City, Florida, USA - AUG 24, 2010
75cl traded bottle. Pours a muddy, lighter brown color with a large khaki head that dissolves into a film. Pretty big aroma that I expect from a quad but also some sour cherry notes. Pretty hot flavor initially but it mellows out with some molasses and malt. The 12 ABV is pretty noticeable and drags this down a bit.

Dorwart (2409) - Robbinsville, New Jersey, USA - AUG 20, 2010
Nice strong head of medium sized but very dense bubbles. Sweet malty aroma with some caramel, oranges, spices and a bit of alcohol. Color is a slightly hazy dark orange. Rich and sweet flavor with lots of caramel, butterscotch, spices and BIG alcohol punch. A typical quad like flavor. Lots of flavor and somewhat thick palate. Finishes sweet and spicey with a lingering alcohol warming. A pretty good quad.

Arayaga2 (1845) - portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 6, 2010
Opaque amber with a thin bone colored head, with nice lacing . Aroma is apples,spices, and stone fruits with a strong alcohol aroma as it warms. Taste is boozy fruit with a tiny bit of dark roasted malt. Carbonation is fine and spot on. Finishes clean with a perfumey lingering alcohol. $8/750

bhensonb (11809) - Woodland, California, USA - JUL 25, 2010
Capped 750 from Oak Tree. Pours clear copper with a foamy yellowy off-white head. Heavy malt aroma with some fruity hop. It has the type of smell good quads share. Medium plus body with frothy carbonation. Flavor is smooth heavy malt, heat, fruit and/or fruity hop. Not sure whether the heat is bothersome or an enhancement. It tastes very good.

MadIndian (2509) - Levittown, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 20, 2010
A thin amber pour with a nice full aroma of sweet caramel malt, candy and citrus. The alcohol taste was well blended with a nice bready/ dark fruit flavor. I enjoyed this.
