I'm surprised BA calls this a "Belgian Strong Ale". I've had three quadrupels and a couple other belgian strong ales and I would definitely call this a quadrupel, not a strong ale. It has far too reserved a taste to be considered a "strong" ale"...not that that's a bad thing, far from it, this is an absolutely fantastic beer that has a huge flavor hiding behind an innocent 8% Abv (less than their La Fin Du Monde).

A: Wow, this beer has a dark, cloudy appearance with a large, extremely foamy head and lacing. Great!

S: An almost spicy malty smell with a big body to it.

T: A big quad-like roasted malt body with light citrus and hops in the background. This beer warms up better than any other beer I've ever tasted. I let this stuff get closer to room temperture than I've ever let any beer get before and it only tasted better. Truly, this is a masterfully crafted brew with fantastic bottle conditioning that has a big bassy malt body but is far more reserved and refined than typical American attempts at beer along these lines. Bigger flavor than La Fin Du Monde with less alcohol content...very impressive.

M: There's just not enough carbonation for this to truly remind me of a trappist product but it's still great.

D: As mentioned, warms up extremely well. Nearly perfect.

Well heck, I can get this stuff for half the price of my usual Belgians and it comes darn close. The fact that it's made in Canada means that it's a lot cheaper. I'm sold and will definitely be checking out more Unibroue in the future.
