What the brewers say

“Our quadrupel ale, meant for the mature connoisseur, is a deep and mysterious libation, dark auburn and full-bodied, its sweetness deceptive.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Fruit at the front, with notes of banana, plum, pear, cherry, and apple. Slight clove and a moderate malt sweetness—mostly biscuit and a hint of caramel. Slight alcohol note.”

Flavor: “Biscuity malt and fruit mingle nicely with notes of white bread, cara- mel, red apple, cherry, and plum. Finish is pleasantly balanced, considering the richness of the malt, making it very drinkable. Nice alcohol warmth to help the beer finish dry and medium-high carbonation level. Properly balanced.”

Overall: “Classic example of the style that is very well executed. Nice play with malt and yeast character, and a surprisingly balanced, perhaps even dry, finish. It doesn’t break new ground, but offers a relaible and tasty experience with appropriate sweetness and nice fruit character.”
