[email protected] Poured in a trapist glass. Color is a dark orange with a thin white head. Aroma is banana, spices and alcohol. Flavor is sweet, banana again, spiced and warm. Heavy body, rich malty palate and a slight bitter finish. More similar to german doppelbocks or eisbocks than to a Trappist. Very good nightcap

[Vintage 2007] Tap @ Barleywine and Big Beer Fest... Poured a golden/orange with a white head. Bready and yeasty aroma. Lots of carbonation and a little dryness on the palate. A metallic alcohol influence on the flavors with an earthy fruit character-- like bananas and apple juice -- Ash and clove notes in the finish. Seemed like a darker tripel.

Brick solid. The most reliable and generally cheapest quad on the market. Does the trick every time. Great for those times that you are sick of Chimay Blue

The strongest of the special beers. Its flavor is full, mild and pleasantly bitter. Quadrupel is presently available in the autumn, is bottled by the year and is perfect company for those long winter evenings.

50th rating ! 341ml bottle cellar temp, Medium head tat diminish fast. Pours red amber. Aroma is yeast, dark/dry fruits, alcohol and spices. Aroma is lovely. Taste is the same as aroma... some cherries hints also. Small bitternes on the finish along with warm alcohol. The alcohol content is discrete if it was not for its waming effet on the finish. Medium carbonation. Good mouthfeel. Taste could be more complex. Notes of fruits, malt. Taste develops after a few sips. Its not very complex but extremely well balanced. Could drink this all day... if I were to stay sit of course !

Cavie (4638) - Arlington, Texas, USA - MAR 4, 2009
UPDATED: JUL 27, 2010 Has a very prominent head. Aroma consists of mainly alcohol. Very strong alcohol taste that has quite a kick to it. Dont take large sips of this one. However it is an excellent quadrupel. 3.0
RE-RATE 7/27/10 Tap at gman. Clear ruby pour. White head. Smells of sweet cherry with woody notes and aged berries. Tastes of smooth fruit. Dry blackberry and powder. Finishes very easy. Nice.

Ah, reminds me of the old days. On tap, pours a clear, dark ruby color with a small, off white head. Very sweet aroma, light fruits, cherries, apples. Sitcky-sweet body, warming with a nutty caramel finish. Tasty.

judasbeer (431) - Budapest, HUNGARY - FEB 28, 2009
Tawny amber color with deep orange hues. Stable, creamy off white head. Rich fruity aroma reminiscent of alcoholic figs, pear, cherries and fresh clove or rather coriander spiciness. Sweet molasses, plums, williams pear, cherries in the flavor. Spicey sherry like finish. Medium to full bodied. Active carbonation, not to dense, but syrupy texture.

UnholyBrewing (595) - Central Florida(Upper Hell), Florida, USA - FEB 26, 2009
...500ml cask, but drank it straight. Great nose of dark fruits, yeast, and slight alcohol notes, as expected for a 10 ABV beer, but it was hidden well. Still had lots of fruit flavor, with decent carbonation. Heavy bodied, with lots of malt, and candy sugar to mask the alcohol. Finished acidic, and slightly bitter. Pertty well balanced for a quad, and it was expensive, but hey, it tastes good and gets you Wanged, so its good. Worth trying.

Pours a cloudy ruby color with a good amount of off whitehead. Aroma has malty, hints of citrus, belgian yeasts and spices, and bit of alcohol smell. Flavor is sweet in the beginning, turning slightly acid near the end. A bit of carbonation with tiny bubbles tingle giving this a nice mouthfeel. Decent quad, a little harsh but I still enjoyed this one.
