The Black Quadrupel poured a very dark hazy brown with hints of ruby red. The aroma was dense with the signature Belgian yeast, dark fruits and sweet caramel malts. It had all the flavors of a deep rich Belgian quadrupel with the bubble gum yeast, dark fruits and spiciness to match. Hidden behind it all was some dark chocolate undertones and the sweet caramel malts. Definitely a lot going on in this thick and hearty brew that coated my palate with it’s creamy confection. I hope Real Ale takes this out of the Brewer’s Cut and makes it a regularly featured beer.

One of my favorite dark Belgian style beers this year. Sad that it is a limited release.

This is my last bottle so it got a bit of ageing.

Poor: opaque black ale. little head.

smell: malt and more malt. yeasty. little citrus or pine from hops. Very much what I expect from the style.

taste: all malt, light hop. Dark fruit -- plum pudding or currants

mouth: smooth and creamy. Similar to Left Hand Milk Stout on nitro. But no nitro here.

Overall: Yum. More please?

Best by 10.08.13

A: Pours a deep dark brown with a big fluffy and fizzy light brown head. Head thins and fades away slowly with great head retention. Light, fluffy chunks of lacing left behind.

S: Big sweet dark fruits. Prunes, figs and some raisin. Plums even? Mild char with bits of chocolate. Caramel is notable along with some cloves.

T: More sweet dark fruits. Heavy and rich flavors contributed by the roasted malt. Gives it a charry, anise flavor with some bitter chocolate (just a hint). Sweet throughout with heavy caramel. Light acrid char in the finish, barely breaking free of the syrupy sweetness. Mild cloves and spices between sips.

M: Heavy body, lower carbonation, syrupy sweetness. Feels like lead in the belly.

O: A nice quad with the roasted malt providing a nice layer of complexity. Super sweet and super heavy, like drinking pure caramel at times. Tasty and enjoyable.
