COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Provisions Series: Cuádruple - If the monks of Belgium had access to the agave plants of Central America, this is the beer they would have brewed. We used heaping amounts of dark agave nectar in place of the typical sugars in our version of the classic Belgian Quadruple.

Traded bottle of unknown vintage. Nice dark brown pour with ruby highlights and a nice head of tight, tiny bubbles that lasts and leaves nice lacing. Big aroma of Belgian yeast, dark fruit, and a hint of berry-like sweetness at the end. Interesting flavor, very sweet but you can still taste the base quad underneath. Nice but maybe a little too much agave sweetness.

February 2, 2014 - bottle via trade. Dark brown pour with lots of head that left behind quite a bit of lacing. Aroma was sweet, dark fruit and alcohol. Taste was consistent with the aroma. There was quite a bit of sweetness plus the dark fruit was there; however the alcohol was very strong. As it warmed, the alcohol seemed to mellow out or it was just my tongue becoming numb, but the sweetness became too much. A touch of spice and caramel made an appearance as it warmed as well. This was all over the place for me, wish I aged it for a while longer.

Atom (1342) - Minneapolis, Minnesota, USA - DEC 26, 2013
Bottle thanks to thome50 pours a dark brown with a large khaki head. Aroma is very cider like with hints of agave, spice, and caramel malts. Taste is very sweet agave, tart and sweet cherries, some bitterness with Belgian yeast, and finishing with caramel and toffee malts. Very nice, I like the sweetness balance with the yeast.

As "strong Belgians from American breweries" go this was above average, probably because the fruity character from the agave was really interesting and didn’t allow the malt to overwhelm with straight caramel/toffee. Also, surprisingly restrained alcohol character for a Bruery beer.

In short: A surprisingly nice fruity Abt with a mild red fruity tartness. Excellent.
How: Bottle 750ml. Consumed when 1.5 year of age. Bottle sent to me by jbtice0315, thanks Jesse.
The look: Cloudy burgundy body topped by a small beige head.
In long: Nose is nicely fruity and somewhat toasted. Taste has a very nice fruity complexity, raisins, red and dark berries, maraschino cherries, tart cherries, luscious caramel, nice Belgian yeast. Pleasant mouthfeel with a lively carbonation. This was a surprising offering from Bruery, mostly spot-on for the style, even the mouthfeel was pretty nice. I thought this beer was one of the few good American take of the Abbey Quad style I’ve had. A textbook example with a little extra of tart cherries. Considering how many American breweries screw-up this style I would have expected a better score from this fine beer. My 750ml went down all too easy. A pleasant surprise here. As with most special Bruery beers it was a bit expensive, and all those sleepless nights I’ve spent drinking expensive beers are starting to show, however I may look older than my age but I do have the credit score of a much younger person.

Cloudy dark brown beer, good pale tan head that persists. Lactose creamy nose. Airy, frothy and semi dry palate. Lactose sweetness. Bitter sweet coca cola and dark fruits. Dry finish. An okay quad, could do with more complexity.

Blairgus (2607) - California, USA - NOV 9, 2012
9 nov 2012, bottle. Light ruby/brim, clear. Nose reminds me of mincemeat, grape jelly, soft licorice, fresh cut tobacco, and dark bread. Thin body and moderately fizzy. Gorgeous! Sweet meat, raisin bread, licorice, tobacco, milk chocolate. Amazing! Reminds me of a sweet, unhopped barley wine. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
