Style | ABV
Quadrupel (Quad) |  12.00% ABV

Availability: Year-round

Notes/Commercial Description:
Our Quadrupel features notes of stone fruit from a Belgian abbey yeast strain and the taste of sweet toffee from a touch of Belgian Candi syrup. This mahogany-colored ale is fermented with a distinct Belgian abbey ale strain, then bottle conditioned with extra sugar and yeast for at least two weeks. European hops add balance to the sweetness of the malt and yeast.

In the United States, the term “Quadrupel” refers to a very strong, dark ale with a spicy, fruit flavor and high alcohol content. The beer style is intended to be stronger than a Belgian-style Tripel, so the alcohol content tends to be 10% or more. Beyond these guidelines, there is still discussion among brewers as to what constitutes a Quadrupel.

look: 4 | smell: 5 | taste: 4 | feel: 4 | overall: 4

A: Cloudy brown with finger of off-white head. The head has super long retention.

S: I am loving the smell of this beer. It is deep and rich. First comes apples, then berries, then a deep caramel maltiness, slight yeastiness and a rich rustic bread. Really, really great.

T: Deep, rich flavor as well. Lots of malts, raisins. There is a a lot of apple as well, and fruity esters. The alcohol comes through and adds a further element. The sweetness is strong, almost to the point of being cloying.

M: The mouthfeel is creamy, almost buttery with a slight stickiness and not a lot of carbonation.

O: Great depth of flavor, but there is an awful lot going on. Finishing the bottle will be a bit of a challenge, just because of the overwhelming sweetness and barrage of flavors.

3.7/5  rDev -3.9%
look: 3.25 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.75 | feel: 3.5 | overall: 3.5

750ml bottle, bottled 7/24/13, into a pint glass
A: Hazy brown color with next to no head
S: Sweet, fig, maple, malt, prunes, dried apricot
T: The initial flavors are very nice- spice, raisin, fig, prune, caramel, toffee but then the sweetness takes over around the midpalate and it finishes with a sweet malt syrup
M: Full bodied from both the alcohol and sugar
O: Nice overall but I think it would be better if there were a bit more spice and a bit less sweetness

4.24/5  rDev +10.1%
look: 4 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4.25 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25

750 ml bottle was poured into a stemmed glass.

Appearance: This beer poured a small head that reduced to a small layer. It is a murky orange brown with little clarity, but vision of tiny bubbles coming up through the glass.

Smell: Toffee, caramel, boozy alcohol, raisins, plums,

Taste: Toffee, caramel, warm boozy alcohol, bready, raisins, plums, and mild hop bitterness.

Mouthfeel: Silky, creamy smooth, full bodied, low carbonation, warm alcohol, and extremely drinkable.

Overall: Pretty solid quad from these Missouri guys. All their beers have been stellar so far, but increasingly harder to find here in Massachusetts. I need to stock up.
