COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Up until 2013 the label always mentioned "Triple", as from 2014 (release: 2015) the word "Triple" on the label has been changed to "Quad".

Story 1: This has always been a quadrupel, but the label designer was confused by the 3 X’s and had therefore changed the name to triple, thinking it was a mistake. (source: Facebook)

Story 2: When brewed at Deca, the beer turned out a bit lighter in colour, so they called it a triple. Now that it’s brewed at the Struise’s own facilities, it’s more darker in colour and they call it a quad. (source: Carlo)

Either way, it’s still the same recipe and should be treated as such.

Another corker from the Beer Gonzo advent calendar. Dark and glossy, with a thin layer of tan coloured head. Malty aroma, with dried fruit, brown bread, dark toffee and figs. Full body, relatively low carb for a quad. Taste has licqorice, roasted malt, sherry, rye, raisins and a hint of the bourbon barrels.

Botella de Tercer Tiempo Tienda (Santander) Color marrón casi negro, olor maltoso, con toques de cacao y cierta acidez. Sabor a cacao, café, maltas torrefactas y un toque de acidez, compleja pero brutal!

Color marrón oscuro, casi negro, con capa de espuma marrón claro de tres dedos de grosor y buena retención. Carbonatación media. Textura oleosa y algo chispeante. Aroma a bourbon, fruta confitada, caramelo, especias, madera, chocolate. Tiene toques ácidos, al igual que en boca, no sé si debido al centeno o a la barrica. Sabor increíble, de entrada casi ácido, luego más dulce, con pasas, caramelo, azúcar moreno, especias, fruto seco, chocolate, mucho bourbon. Final licoroso suave y ligeramente amargo, con algo de lúpulo ligeramente herbal. Fruta madura en postgusto.

UPDATED: NOV 17, 2017 Aroma is subtle but complex, with dried fruits like plums, figs, dates, raisins. There's also caramel, candy sugar, a touch of bourbon, wood notes. Oily, low on carbonation, warm with alcohol. Sweet and malty, with raisins, bourbon, candied fruit, figs, dates, wood, liquor. Goes nicely in a cold evening.

W smaku nuty chlebowe i karmelowe, pumpernikiel, ciemne owoce, skórka od chleba, dębina. Pifko słodkie z przełamaniem skórką od chleba. Pifko mega gładkie, alko totalnie niewyczuwalne.

Beese (3260) - Watford, Hertfordshire, ENGLAND - OCT 10, 2017
330ml bottle from an unknown original (aka I can’t remember). Deep amber, with a tan head. Rich, fruity aroma, some vanilla and bourbon notes, but not at all overpowering. Dried fruit, spice and some rye in the flavour. Nice!

Robe brune très foncée opaque. Mousse jaune claire courte, légère, tenue moyenne. Nez sur la vanille, le chocolat au lait, bourbon léger, gourmand. Bouche fidèle au nez : chocolat au lait, vanille, douceur légèrement torréfiée, douceur alcooleuse; note légèrement boisée, bourbon qui complexifie une bouche gourmande, mais ni trop alcooleuse ni trop sucrée. Corpulence moyenne à épaisse, carbonatation faible à moyenne. Quadruple douce, gourmande, où le bourbon et le bois perce. Pas trop lourde ou forte.

2013 vintage. Carefully poured and is a nice clear dark ruby red with small beige head. Rich dark fruits apparent in the aroma, plums, raisins, dates, toffee, some alcohol, bourbon noticeable as well. The taste also has all the same sweet dark fruits, oak vanillin, smooth bourbon and sherry notes, herbal hop character, light spicy rye and yeast notes, very smooth booziness. Full bodied, oily, smooth, moderate carbonation. Very enjoyable.
