COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Schlafly Quadrupel is, as its name implies, a serious beer. But dont be intimidated. This fourth beer in our bottle-conditioned Belgian-style beer series has a rich, malty backbone that is generously balanced by select, fresh hops to create a luscious, smooth character. Sharing it with friends enhances the enjoyment, whether in front in front of a roaring fire or at the finest dinner party.

Bouteille de 750 bue en compagnie de Patrick. Bire cuivre avec une mousse beige durable, un 5 pour le ct visuel. Le nez de fruits confits, de tabac, de sucre dorge, de vin rouge et de noix est superbe. Une bouche profonde, puissante, pas trop sucre. Une texture quasi crmeuse. Une effervescence agrable qui la rend facile boire. Un peu suret. Des saveurs de noix et de vin rouge compltent la marche. 8/10

Une bouteille de 75 cl partage avec rodenbach99. Une superbe robe orange sur laquelle une tte beige exhibe sa fantastique tnacit. Une dentelle installe qui meurt petit feu. Un nez passablement complexifi avec des notes maltes caramlises et mielleuses, du pain suret et des fruits de toute sorte qui prsentent un ct givr et acidul. Un got volutif de pain caramlis, dalcool pic, de poivre et de fruits immatures. Un corps qui me semble tre de moyenne densit. Des bulles au pouvoir nettoyant et une texture bellement huileuse. Une finale chaude et amre comme une liqueur monastique pique par les fruits. Tout compte fait, une affaire solide et savoureuse.

750 mL Bottle. Pours a cloudy medium brown color with a big lively off-white head. Raisins, caramel, wood, malty, dark fruit aromas. Strong, malty, brown sugar, alcohol flavors. I thought I remembered liking this one better in the past. But it tastes better as you let it warm up a little bit.

No bottling information.
Appearance: The body is a murky amber to copper with a dense but short tan head. I stored this on its side so Im guessing this should actually be clear.
Aroma: The aroma is mild with crackers, brown sugar, apple cider and peppery spice. Complex, but restrained. Smells decent though.
Taste: The intro is very bready with a saltine crackers flavor. The flavor gets more intense with brown sugar and apple cider coming through pretty strong by the finish with only hints of alcohol. The finish lingers of a light spice that I find hard to describe, perhaps cinnamon and nutmeg? Its subtle though and a mild alcohol presence lingers, warming my throat.
Palate: Full-bodied with semi-sharp carbonation, definitely pricks my tongue a bit.
Overall: This is a very solid quad, spicy, fruity and malty, complex and drinkable especially at 12%. This is drinkable, but Im glad Im splitting a bottle.

750 ml from State Line. Pours hazy bright coppery orange with frothy off-white head. Nose is funky, yeasty, fruity, with notes of cherry, prune, and cobwebby malts, Tastes very citric and floral, with mid-palate hops, some bitter tartness, cherry, heat, and lactic funkiness in the finish. Overall comes off a bit bitter for my tastes.

750 mL bottle with some age on it. Pours a dark copper color with a thin fizzy off-white head. Decent head retention. Aroma of dry fruits, nuts, spice. The taste is bread, spice, dates, dark fruits, toffee. Medium bodied, highly carbonated, warming alcohol. Nice beer.

First, let me say that foam leaked from the bottle the second the cap was popped, and it wouldnt stop until we intervened and removed some of the beer from the bottle. On top of the large tan head that sits on top of the beer, the color is an opaque and cloudy copper with quite a bit of medium- to large-grain sediment in the bottom of the glass. The aroma is mostly boozy with hints of caramel malts and sour fruit, which doesnt really hit the mark for being appealing, and the taste is quite sour, slightly sweet, and slight bitter, which almost makes up for how the nose doesnt quite make you want to drink. Furthermore, the palate combines a full body, boozy and astringent finish, lively carbonation, and a thin texture, which leaves me a little confused and not that pleased.

Aroma does not feature typical Belgian yeast esters. Highly sweet aroma: sugar, candi sugar, and molasses. The beer is almost too sweet and doesn't feature any Belgian flavor profile that is true to a Belgian dark strong ale. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
