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.

fiulijn (14380) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - MAY 3, 2014
Draught at Mikkeller Bar, Copenhagen
Black color with brownish head, compact. The aroma is dominated by a very nice vanilla, with sweet wood and traces of raspberry, and a hint of cheese. Good body strength, with some residual sweetness, dark caramel flavor, evident influence from red fruits, and a fair degree of acidity; yet, with a touch of vanilla, this manages to be smooth. Overall well balanced.
A very interesting brew, one that makes me happy I tried it.
Last opinion: the aroma is fantastic, the flavor a bit too much fruity.
A great beer.
