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.

ezy_sippa (4) - Terranora, AUSTRALIA - FEB 1, 2018 does not count
Purchased as part of the IBC Platinum Pack. Damn happy I stumbled across this place. Poured slowly. Dark reddish black in colour with small creamy head. Aromas if dark stone fruits, wet cedar, toffee and caramel. Taste of coffee toffee caramel quite sweet but exactly what I like. The bourbon comes through subtly at the end. Low carbonation but pretty sure I’ve found the ultimate beer. 3/4 way though and 1/2 pissed. Winning on all levels. It wins.

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!

4.3
kaserov (1170) - Oviedo, SPAIN - NOV 26, 2017
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.
