amber in color. Pours a decent head, smells of fruit and spices. Good flavor, fruit and bitter a little spicey, and strong very good. Yum, I want another!
2009 Bottle from Indiana_Red at a bottle share: At almost 10 years old, super mellowed out, a lot in the aroma that resembles a mead. A little papery in the finish. BierMeHoos (644) - Maryland, USA - AUG 26, 2017
Where: Old Line Fine Wine Spirits & Bistro.
How: 12 ounce bottle.
Appearance pours a clear dark copper color, 1-2 fingers of white head, sticky lacing. Aroma is dark sugars and darker fruits. Taste is rich and malty to open, lots of caramel and molasses flavors give it a semi-sweet start, lots of overripe dark fruits, raisins and plum. Some hops for spiciness and bittering comes into play later. Palate is well carbonated.... sticky and warming. Overall a pretty solid Quad from Avery. Not the absolute best Quad I’ve ever had but still pretty damned good. Goes down way too easily and would love to try this one barrel aged. fugitive (2027) - Athens, GREECE - AUG 17, 2017

can @ Cork ’n Bottle / Crescent Springs KY --- Aroma of dark malt and alcohol. Hazy amber brown, beige head that drops quickly to a thin cover, hanging webs of lace. Taste is dark, lightly roasted malt, medium carbonation, and lightly spiced bitters that eventually yield to alcohol. A full-bodied brew, well-balanced and smooth from start to finish. Recommended.

Pretty good beer. There’s definitely something of about it after the first one. It’s just too hard to get through and too warm. Very much an artsy fartsy beer for the in-crowd. At first I was very pulled in by the cherries, but I hate how this beer hangs on you. It’s like, no matter how cold it is, it’s always warm. And the taste is weird, it doesn’t know what it wants to be. It tastes like a saison and acts like a saison. Instead it’s a quadrupel, and definitely the weakest I’ve had.

Bottle. Light clear amber light toasted malt some Belgian yeast notes. LingerING abv burn Alengrin (5535) - BELGIUM - JUN 28, 2017
One of Avery’s many strong ales, from a can at BeerTemple in Amsterdam. Thick, moussy, egg-white head with slowly opening middle, hazy orangey bronze robe - looking more ’quadrupel’ (as in La Trappe Quadrupel) than ’abt’ (as in Sint-Bernardus 10 Abt). Powerful, enticing bouquet of caramel sauce, marmelade, freshly baked bread, chestnut cream sauce, brandy, grilled horse steak juice, cashew nuts, strawberry wine, hazelnut oil, white port, cane sugar, candied cherry and a faint hint of cooked vegetables in warming up. Candied sweet onset, cherry, almond and marmelade notes, soft with a kind of juicy-meaty umami note, lots of residual candi sugary sweetness as is to be expected from the style, soft carbo, thick, bit fluffy and pleasantly vinous mouthfeel. Big caramelly and nutty malt body, sweetness enhanced by lingering candy sugar, yet nowhere cloying; sweetness also dominates the finish but in a noble, refined way, with hints of chestnut cream sauce, orange zest and amaretto, low in bitterness but still a - welcome - drying, mildly spicy hop character; some retronasal cooked cauliflower notes, probably DMS, but fortunately very limitedly so. Afterglow of gently warming alcohol. Quadrupel in the most classic sense indeed - ’classic’ referring to La Trappe Quadrupel, which has, after all, only been in existence since 1991.

Cloudy red-brown. Very immature. Light malt, berry and booze aroma. Very light palate for such a strong beer. Notes include wheat, malt, dark fruits, raisins, blackberry, licorice and twigs. Simply not bad.
