Beer added by: Bitterbill on 11-15-2007

”Do you know what dwells in a glass?” asks Ole, in Hans Christian Andersen's The Watchman of the Tower. Better known for stories such as The Little Mermaid, Andersen wrote this short, cautionary tale for a somewhat older audience. Our quadrupel ale, also meant for the mature connoisseur, is a deep and mysterious libation, dark auburn and full-bodied, its sweetness deceptive. As Ole describes the glasses in turn, their contents become more ominous until, in the sixth glass...

12oz bottle into a chalice
Best before: 3/7/16

A: Pours an opaque dark copper, nearly brown, with just under 2 fingers width of tan head which has great retention and leaves a solid sheet of lacing. 4.75

S: Tons of easterly banana, some white and black pepper spice, subtle clove. Tame aromas of dark fruit and toffee/caramel. Very nice. 4.25

T: Lots of spice, coupled with sweet notes of dark fruits and toffee. Some bitterness, a bit of booze. 4.25

M/D: Full bodied, carbonation appropriate but on the heavy side which makes it a bit less smooth than others in the style, ABV is very well masked, and drinkability is great. 4.25

O: Really nice example of the style. Often times I find that the American versions of Quads to fall short in a lot of areas, but that was not the case here. Certainly not of St. Bernardus/Roche/Westy caliber, but worth a try and very enjoyable. 4.25

Big thanks to bonsreeb85 for giving me the chance to try this one. Thanks Chad!

A- Pours a deep hazy amber color with a thick frothy foam head that leaves some scattered lace.

S- Belgian yeast and spice with some dark fruit aromas coming through.

T- Ripe fruit and tangy Belgian yeast flavor initially with a hint of alcohol in the finish. After the first few sips many more flavors become pronounced. Banana, plum, brown sugar and raisins all meld together quite nicely. A very sweet aftertaste is left behind.

M- Medium bodied with tons of spritzy carbonation.

D- Really nice brew that had a definitely felt like an American Quad (if there is such a thing). Complex and flavorful. Definitely worth picking up.

Poured from a 12oz. glass into a chalice.

A - Poured a semi-transparent golden-brown, with a thick, nearly three-finger head.

S - Berries, kiwis, and a little booze.

T - Oh wow, the booze! Tart fruitiness quickly gets overtaken by an aggressive booziness. It sits like hops in an IPA - it permeates the entire flavor. The tartness fades as the malt sets in, and fades into a nice residual sweetness.

M - Very satisfying thickness. Just a little bit of fizziness, but mostly full, thick body.

O - It would be nice to have a little bit less boozy flavor (although it fades a bit as the beer warms up) to taste all the other nice things happening, but otherwise a great beer!

A: Clear, red amber color. Poured a 2 finger coarse tan head with good retention. Lots of sticky lace.

S: Sweet bready crystal malt. Grapefruit and peppery spice.

T: Smooth and sweet crystal malt. Some mild phenolic flavors. Spices mingle with dark fruits, vanilla and cinnamon. Complex and delicioius. Even bitter finish ahead of alcohol warming.

M: Medium to full body. Medium carbonation. Smooth then hot and dry.

D: Delightful; flavorful, complex, but fairly balanced. The ABV will catch up.

I have had this beer for quite some time, but I am sure that it has held up lurking on the bottom of my lagering cooler. It says that this is batch number 69198. I haven't been disappointed with one of the "smokestack series" yet, so let's give this one a try.

Appearance: Pours a mostly clear reddish brown color with tons of bubbles rising to maintain the 1" head of pillowey thick tan bubbles. Even after a minute, the head was every bit as high as it was after a very careful pour. There is some pretty heavy lacing left on the glass after drinking.

Aroma: I initially got some dark caramel malts with a tad of oxidation on top of some serious spicy alcohol. This beer has a very assertive aroma. After it sits, though the foam is still solid, it is taking on a more dry and earthy aroma that is accented by the spicy alcohol and sweet malts. There are some defined toasty notes in this beer that is becoming more apparent as it warms.

Taste: The flavor is really clean for having such a bold aroma. It is, of course, very well carbonated and dances across your palate like a bat out of heck. There are plenty of caramel notes in here that play well with the spicy notes from the alcohol. The beer is medium bodied with a rather dry finish due to the alcohol and carbonation. There is plenty of warming in the finish to linger for minutes after the sip, yet it doesn't seem hot or fusel the whole time, so this is a nice accomplishment for Boulevard.

Opinion: This is a very well crafted beer. I may have had this beer for 6 months, and it has held up perfectly. It doesn't quite have the sheer malt complexity that some of the Belgian greats have, but it is something to be said that I am comparing this beer to the likes of St Bernardus, or Koeningshoeven. I am very impressed with the overall flavor and presentation of this beer. It is of world-class quality and I would definitely recommend it.

12 oz. bottle,

A: Pours a dark amber with a medium soft fizzy white head. Solid Belgian-style head retention, no lace.

S: Dark fruit, dates and raisins, some toffee malt.

T: Sweet dark fruit, tons of date juice. The sugar is hampered from going haywire at the mid-palate by a swift hop attack. In the end the beer is dominated by a soft estery dark malt which is very reminiscent of Belgium more than America.

M: Soft easy carbonation, very elegant, gorgeous soft yet crispy carbonation. Very impressive from an American brewer, this is really well done.

O: Fans of Achel Bruin and St. Bernardus Prior 8, if you can find this you will love it. I know I'm blending categories, but I think I'm right on this one. Easily one of the best American-made quads I've had. Just a really good beer.

Recommended by the helpful friends at the Neil St. Piccadilly in Champaign, I grabbed this from the Boulevard display, eager to try something from their Smokestack series. This did not disappoint. Rich, cloudy burgundy body, topped by two fat fingers of off-white foam, with plenty of lacing on the Yankees pint glass--used because I was watching the Yankees-Red Sox game; splendid presentation. Nicely aromatic, not overwhelming but thankfully complex--cherry, berry, chocolate, and hazelnut coffee.

This is really delicious. The cherry stood out to me, but various flavors emerge in turn--coffee, caramel, back to cherry--not too sweet but certainly not tart. Very impressive in its balance. A winner. The mouthfeel seals the deal for me--well-carbonated, smooth, and durable--never flattening out, fresh though lingering with me for a couple innings. Well done. The alcohol does start to weight heavily near the end, reducing the drinkability a bit.

This quadrupel is not overwhelming in its flavor. For people looking for a big, brash quadrupel, this might disappoint. Yet for those looking for a good, well-crafted, well-flavored, smooth Quad, this should satisfy. At $8 for the 22 oz. bottle it's a little pricey, but certainly enjoyable enough--and a bit boozy enough--to ultimately overlook (or plainly forget) the price in favor of the flavor. Definitely recommended.

Appearance: Pours a hazy russet color with an impressive billowy head; excellent retention and swathes of lace

Smell: Caramel spicecake, with rum-soaked raisins, figs, candi sugar and a lot of phenols

Taste: Caramel spicecake up front, with a peppery blend of candi sugar, banana, fig, raisins and apples; after the swallow, the alcohol takes over, bringing a fair amount of phenols in the aftertaste

Mouthfeel: Medium to full body with buoyant carbonation; lots of warmth in the gullet after the swallow

Overall: I am quite impressed by this; one of the best representations of a Belgian style from a domestic craft brewery

A: Garnet with nice clarity and mild carbonation. Soapy red tinted head starts out strong and has average retention. Leaves spots of lace.

S: Spicy and vinous. Starts out with a strong aroma of coriander and clove. Cherries and grapes sit in the background, backed up by a mild alcohol presence. Slightly musty.

T: Very wine like out of the gate. Dark fruits dominate initially with a heavy cherry note that's helped along by raisins and raspberries. A spicy clove bitterness comes on to provide balance. Alcohol in the finish adds warmth and combines with the cherry flavor to create a mild, but not unpleasant medicinal spike.

M: Medium-heavy body is sticky and syrupy. Carbonation is right on target.

D: I really liked this beer. A very well done Quad that I'm glad I picked up. A perfect accompaniment to the snowy evening I drank it on.

Poured from a 12 oz. bottle (from a 4-pack) into a clear tulip glass.

Appearance: Hazy dark brown color with amber tint. Tall off-white head with nice creamy peak that retained for quite a while before fading to a nice frothy cap. Also left good sticky lacing. A thing of beauty in a tulip glass.

Smell: Fruity and spicy, scents of dates, figs, plums, clove and nutmeg. Some alcohol in the mix, too.

Taste: Much like it smells, dark fruits and yeast up front with flavors of figs and raisins, with sweet caramel malt afterwards and a slight alcohol burn on the finish. A very tasty Quad.

Mouthfeel: Slick and creamy, medium to full body and hearty. Perfect for the style.

Overall: Wow. Boulevard has done it again with their Smokestack series. I love thier Tank 7 Sasion, and I really love this Quad. An excellent American interpretation of the style, and pretty close to the Belgian Trappist versions of this style (and that's quite a compliment!). Will buy and drink this one again for sure!

12 oz bottle, Best by 1/17/13, poured into a chalice

Appearance- Pours a mahogany color with about a finger of off white head, fades to a nice looking film atop the beer, like most quads seem to look like, though a bit lighter in color. So far, so good.

Smell- Aromas of cherries, plum, and fig with some brown sugar. Caramel and raison, and slight alcohol.

Taste- Loads of dark fruit as the aroma would suggest. Raisons, fig and plum really are the main attractions here. Lots of caramel malt and some brown sugar flavors. Follows the nose very well. A peppery spice towards the finish, with a slight bitterness, perhaps orange peel and subtle banana quality from the yeast.

Mouthfeel- medium full body, a tad syrupy, but not medicinal. Fairly “hot”.

Overall- A very, very nice American crafted quad. I only expect this to smooth out with some age as it approaches its best by date, and should hold sturdy even beyond that. Have the other 3 bottles in the cellar and will probably pick up some more at some point. Solid beer and at a good price point all things considered, definitely would recommend this.

Poured in a snifter glass. Shows a deep copper color with a smallish tightly bubbled white head that shows moderate retention. Smells of brown sugar and candied dark fruits mostly with a hint of pepper and spicy yeast. Taste is sweet candied fruit and brown sugar mixed with a bit of pepper, yeast, and ethanol goodness. Medium to thick body, spirited level of carbonation, sweet bubbly mouthfeel. Overall, finally a solid American Quad I can relate to well!

Pours brown with red tones. Tan head. Nose is perfume and dough. Flavor profile brings lots of caramel, a full plate of spices, a good amount of dough. Just a slight touch of alcohol there, but it's really balanced. Feel is smooth on all aspects. This is really nice to drink. Good complexities and a good American interpretation.

Poured into a Unibroue tulip.

A: Pours a cloudy copper amber color. One finger tan head fades pretty quickly. Minimal lace.

S: Brown sugar, maple syrup, cinnammon. As the beer warms, more bread-like aromas take over.

T: Cinnamon and black pepper, dark fruits. Sweet biscuit and well-integrated but very present alcohol follow. Very little bitterness and long, lingering finish. Sweetness is apparent yet subdued. Maple flavor and soft minerals creep in after a while. Dark fruits and semi-sweet malts battling it out, who will win? The taster wins.

M: Full bodied, but the carbonation keeps it buoyant.

O: A great beer-- one I will revisit often. Thank you, Boulevard, you have another winner.

Poured from a bottle purchased August 2011 into a pint glass. Bottle stamped - "best by July 2013". Nice looking brownish-orange, hazy, with a 2 finger tan head that has light brown streaking across the top. Dissipates slowly with moderate lacing.

Smells sweet, fruity and malty.

Strong taste - malt, and sweetness, with an alcohol warmth at the end. Caramel.

Feels full and smooth, creamy going down and in the mouth.

Overall - quads are not my favorite style and I tend to not like my beer tasting too much like alcohol, but I am nitpicking. Despite really tasting the abv this is a top notch beer that is tasty and smooth and looks pretty in the glass.

A: poured amber brown in color with yellow highlights and nice fluffy thin head that left a little lacing sticking to the glass.

S: nice dark fruit aroma upfront in the nose such as raisin, dates, and plums with belgian yeast sweetness and hints of brown sugar.

T: the belgian yeast character was more prominent on the taste alongside raisins, plums, brown sugar accents, lots of malty sweetness, slight booze and a touch of pear fruit.

M: the brew was medium in body with a fair amount of carbonation which had a sweet, dark fruity, yeasty, malty, and sticky finish.

O: really was digging this beer and was a good interpretation of an abbey quad.

Deep red, garnet hue with a bubbly, thin head. Smells of raisins and other earthy fruits with a hint of oak. Tastes the same. The taste was of deep fruit (prunes,etc) but with a hint of chocolate. The appearance was the beast part of the beer, it was beautiful. It's a very strong beer, and im usually not a fan of quadrupel Belgians but this one was fantastic. The subtle fruit notes and dash of chocolate made for a great flavor. Mouthfeel was crisp.

Pours dark orange with a decent head. No true lace.

Big juicy fruit and browned bread crust, some yeast and candied spices in the nose.

Big, sugary, boozy, spicy, fruitiness up front. Some hop bitterness to help balance things out. Candied sugar, yeast, toasted malt, and alcohol all meld wonderfully.

Full bodied and chewy. A mouth coater. Wonderful to drink, but the alcohol will bite you. A great version of the style.

Picked this up recently at Joe Canal's in Parsippany, excited that I could finally have a Boulevard beer without having to travel out to heartland. I was a bit skeptical as to whether they could brew a Quad that matched up to the benchmarks from across the pond and while this didn't quite match up to those, there's no shame in falling just a bit short to some of the best offerings in the world. I really enjoyed this to the point where I didn't mind having the alcohol knock me on my ass when I finally got through this!

The pour to this was outstanding - with a silently radiant light plum hue, voluminous head that didn't quit, and lacing that ranked nearly second-to none as it left a net around the side of my pint glass. The carbonation was a tsunami as it rose in wave after wave once I poured all of this out of the bottle and scrubbed my palate clean after each sip. Additionally, it lent itself to making this beer look like dark amber, as the bubbles were able to suspend themselves in the head that comprised the surface of this beer. Then came the taste - yeast, plum, fig, booze, candied sugar, and a bit of bubble gum that seamlessly coalesced together wonderfully. Dark this was not but it was a Quad through and through without the spice and gravitas that would characterize an Abbey. No matter - this got better and better as it warmed up while warming me up at the same time. A bit of medicinal band-aid flavors came out in the aftertaste as the sweetness subsided but the hops never really made themselves know, with the exception of a faint reminder in the back as a herbal, grassy bitterness quietly took hold once everything else faded into the background.

Don't be fooled - this was every bit as strong as a Quad should be and this beer made no bones about it. Coming up short in this category is like saying that you shot the moon and missed. This beer still made it to the stars and we're all the better for it . Boulevard should be commended for crafting this as I was nearly fooled into thinking this came from overseas and anyone who loves Belgian beers or something that elevates the American art of craft brewing owes it to him or herself to give this a go. It's strong in the sense that all the components to this beer fit in harmoniously together, with results worthy of it's world-class rating on here.

Thanks to jtrockchalk for sending this my way.

A - Pours a brownish-red color and looks murky. The red that comes through in tbe light really pops and gives off a brightnes that starts to look closer to a ruby color. The tan head is very nice and shows good retention. It recedes to a very thick tan cap that doesn't go away. Lacing is average.

S - Dark fruit aromas come through first with raisin and plum. Gingerbread and yeast quickly follow. Alcohol is evident and has a warming effect. Some spices like pepper and cinnamon come through midway. The end is sweet with notes of caramel and coffee.

T - Taste is complex. Several flavors are equally present and just seem to play off each other with no one flavor taking any kind of commanding lead. Fruit is cherry and raisin flavored hard candy. Caramel also has a showing. Granola and wheat bread are both present with a hint of yeast that comes in behind. Alcohol is present and is fairly warm.

M - Full bodied with a nice level of carbonation that compliments the beer overall. Finish is sweet and cleaner than expected. Kind of warm with the high abv but it works for this brew.

D - Drinkability is good - approaching very good. The 10.5% is pretty easy to get through. Still, one bottle is enough. Starts to get boozy about half way through but not completely in a bad way. Nice complexity and very smooth. This is my first experience with the Smokestack Series and it is a good one. Easily recommended as this is a nice example of the Quadrupel style.

I will admit I am an amateur and this is my first review. That being said here goes.

I thought this beer was very smooth and had a good taste. Had a bit of a fruity taste to it. I would suggest drinking it at a warmer temperature, because it was too cold straight from the refrigerator.

Pours a murky ruby reddish color with a large cream-colored head that goes down quickly. Some floaties floatin around in there as well. Scent is quite lovely. Very similar to a true trappist Belgian quad. Great malt aroma blended nicely with spicy Belgian yeast aromas. Dark fruits and fresh bread with some pepper and light banana. Very lovely and inviting aroma. Taste is just as good. Great Belgian yeast flavors with fresh dark fruits. Great plum, raisin, and date flavors. Peppery, spicy finish on the tongue. The high ABV is there, but it's not overwhelming at all. Very well-balanced. Mouthfeel is full bodied, creamy and crisp at the same time. Tingly, spicy finish. Drinkability is high for such a big beer. Overall, this is one of the better American Quads out there. Very tasty, and I'm so glad Boulevard comes to California now!

The shape of the bottle, the quirky label artwork, and the Boulevard Brewing Co. name engraved on the neck gave off a very European vibe. The body looked a little paler than a typical Quad, with the color of mahogany. The head was fizzy and short lived, settling down to a lacy collar. The smell had fragrances of apricot, hazelnut, and pear. The flavor was delicately sweet and a bit spicy. I could taste raisin, pears, saffron, toffee, and chili pepper. The aftertaste was sweet like hard candy, until abruptly being cut off by yeasty dryness. Quite sticky in the mouth, and not quite as velvety smooth like the true Belgian varieties. The beer would have benefited from some darker malts to further enhance the date and fig flavors mentioned on the label, and add complexity.

Hard to tell much about a quad from its pour. This one's got a real nice big head, for example, and while that's typically a good thing that could be a sign there being just a wee bit too much yeast in this bottle, which would hamper the drinking experience. As is, it sure looks pretty. So I'll give it the benefit of the doubt.

Smells very solidly fruity, good straight up spicy yeast, no off nodes whatsoever. I hope you'll forgive me for saying that this smells like it's actually from Belgium, and from an American brewer west of New York and East of California that is no small feat.

Tastes like a darn good quad. Big punch, in here. Loads of fruit start things off, mostly sour, some mushy and over ripe. Pears and plums dominate with some solid nodes of raisins. This gives way to a really nicely spicy yeast profile the bends somewhere in between white pepper and something I can't quite put my finger on. Cilantro, maybe? It's odd, yes, but it's faint and it works.

Kudos to Boulevard.
