BEER INFO

Brewed by:
The Bruery
California, United States | website

Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 10.00%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Cuádruple combines elements of Belgium with elements of Mexico, hence the name, meaning "quadruple" in Spanish. We bended a classic Belgian quad recipe by removing the standard Belgian candi sugars and replacing them with dark agave syrup. The resulting beer is a luxurious tribute to two very different parts of the world.

ABV: 10%, IBU: 45, SRM: 25, Release: One time only

On tap at the source

A: poured a dark brown in color with reddish amber brown highlights when held up to the light and had a nice tight finger of head leaving some good lacing sticking to the glass.

S: dark fruits alongside brown sugar were noticeable on the first whiff with light toasted pecans, slight banana, spices, and belgian yeast character.

T: the booze waas pretty well hidden in the aroma but showed its face on the taste with dark fruits, banana, spice,and toasty nutty accents but had the belgian yeast running all through it.

M: the brew was medium in body with a good amount of carbonation which had a sweet, nutty, yeasty, boozy, and slight toasty finish.

D: definitely a sipper but was a decent interpretation of a belgian style quad.

750 mL bottle,

A: Pours brown with a big 3 finger light tan head initially, but dies down fairly quickly, very light lace.

S: Raisin, fig, brown sugar, classic "American" quad. I do see a note of the agave but it's quite mild. Nice smelling beer.

T: Big brown sugar, dark fruit, some molasses, very similar to the nose, though the agave comes out a lot more than in the smell. There is a fair amount of booze, however, and the sugar gets to be to much at times. Has its good points and bad points.

M: Full-bodied, frothy, soft carbonation, certainly is cloying at times, real sugary.

D: Just a beer that needs some age. It's not bad, it just needs to mellow out. The sugar is going a little crazy, but something to see where it is in a couple years.
