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 Copenhagen Beer Celebration.
10.1% abv. Very dark brown-red beer, good pale tan head. Light crisp palate, dry. Sweet and sour malts with nice vanilla oak barrel. Finishes dry. Nice contrast of sweet and sour.

ClubGonzo (3854) - Bergen, NORWAY - MAY 25, 2012
On tap @ Copenhagen Beer Celebration. Pours a dark brown body with a big off-white head. Aroma is buttery doughy caramelized sweet tones, biscuits, hints of toffee, soy, wood and dark malts. Amazing in its near-pungent sweetness, which is beckoning without being over the top in any way. Man, this smells good! Taste is vastly complex: malty butterscotch-like tones with somehow still appear to end up as slightly tart (!), raisins, wood, toffee and hints of red berries. Complex interplay between sour, wine-like BA tones and doughy buttersweet notes from the quad. Smooth and nearly slick mouthfeel, moderate carbonation. A truly original concept which I thoroughly enjoyed - one of the very pleasant surprises at CBC. :-)

Pours deep brown with a small, staying, frothy, beige head. Aroma is kinda funky, oak, tartness, lactic, youghurt, caramel, kinda infected. Medium carbonation, dry and quite oily. Flavour is sweet and tart, oak, sharp lactic. Not good.

Papsoe (25090) - Frederiksberg, DENMARK - MAY 20, 2012
On tap. Pours an opaque black with a creamy beige head leaving laces. Rustic aroma, tart dry fruit and a whiff of glue. Medium-bodied, tart dry fruit, a little caramel and....lactic acid? leading up to the tart finish. 120512
