COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Massively big and delicious, QUAD is an elegant and dark ale. Rich with complexity and flavor, try savoring it after a long day or during a fine dinner. You also might enjoy it as an aperitif or as an accompaniment to a dessert, but QUAD stands alone quite well. We recommend enjoying QUAD in a brandy snifter or wineglass so you can drink in the aroma of this fine elixir.

Dark brown color, sweet and spicy nose. Fruity malty sweet taste, and strong alcohol. I would like to sip on some with a cigar.

My first taste was full of chocolate, but that strangely disappeared and became medicinal with alcohol flavors kicking in more as it warmed. Started off almost like a liquer, but seemed to become thin at some points. The strenght makes this a good one to share.

This was down right awful. Try this when your palate is already ruined.

estoppel (1028) - Buffalo, New York, USA - DEC 4, 2002
Sort of a ruby color, tan head recedes quickly, nose like a tropical fruit Lifesaver. Fairly sweet, with a thickish mouthfeel; the fruits (especially cherry) seem to be fighting the alcohol flavor for dominance. Some breadiness too. A touch medicinal, as others have said. Leaves an alcohol taste in the mouth.

This quad ale is strong! Dark in color, close to no head. You can taste some of that 12.1 ABV. Good for an after dinner snack. Overall a good strong belgian ale!

Big beer. Malty and thick. Almost syrupy in consistency and color. Very little head. Nicely balanced, in the mouth with a warming, not overbearing, alcohol finish. Makes a great, relaxing aperitif.

Just visited the Brewery today, very nice people. The brew pours deep brown/ruby color, little head at first but soon disapates. Smell is of fruit and alcohol. Tastes of fruit and coffee. The flavor is really hard to pin down. It is one BIG beer, that everyone should give a try. The finish leaves alittle bit to be desired but this may improve with age.

My overall favorite beer from this brewery...personally, I like it better than LaTrappes’s Quadrupel. Definitely improves with adequate aging (I have some 1.5 years old, but I live close and was there for its debut...what a spectacle!!) becoming less sweet and a little smoother (although it is fairly smooth already!)
