COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Westbrook’s Belgian Quadrupel was a short-lived member of its special collection, going on tap almost exclusively at the brewery and ostensibly disappearing. A brewery tour stop in the barrel room indicates that most of this puppy has been aging ever since, and here’s your chance to sample the results. The Mourvèdre wine barrel should complement the massive dark fruit and malt components of the Quad quite nicely.

On tap at Porter. Pours a clear deep amber with a brown head that dissipates to the edges. Aroma has notes of dark sweet grains, popcorn and dark fruits with a hint of wine barrel and tartness. Flavor has a good amount of tart fruit with some sweet dark grains and a bit of wine barrel.

Palme (3284) - Bergen, NORWAY - AUG 26, 2012
UPDATED: SEP 3, 2013 On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. This is a dark brown - near murky one with a small heavy lacing and sidesticking beige head. It smells both buttery and sweet, some acidity also and a twitch of berries. Sweet in flavor, both sweet and sour actually, some lilies, licorice, woody red wine and glazed sweet blue plums with a little bit of alcohol. Tasty! 12.05.2012

On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration 2013. Uinique on the nose this, and it has a really big heavy sidesticking dense beige top of a dark clear ruby brown colored beer. Sugar candy sweet, lots of raisins, the dark and expensive type and not small in quantities. Dark glazed dried fruits as well. Smells really nice this, but it’s giving an impression that this is a super sweet beer. Let’s try; no, not at all. It has a strong wood sourness actually, and it’s not sweet at all. Red sour berries with tons of wood. A bit unexpected considering the aroma. Vinous re wine and lingering flavors. 04.05.2013

Deep brown with tan film of foam. Complex, red wine, dark fruits, some sweet malts and maybe some bourbon. Very nice Sourish notes gives way to malty sweetness. Some citrusy notes and dates.

Theydon_Bois (8127) - The ’Sham, Surrey, ENGLAND - AUG 14, 2012
Tap at the Craft Beer Co - 11/08/12. Dark black with a thin head that soon cleared to the edge. All sorts going on in this beer in both nose and taste! Aroma - port/ wine, butterscotch, toffee, spices, dark fruit, malts, aniseed. Taste - Dark fruits, fig/raisen, mollasses, burnt tofee and sugar, spice, even a dose of mint. Medium to full bodied with a little alcohol in the finish but just the right level. Would definately re-visit!
