It became my favorite Midwest beer

Having lived a mile from the Belgian border I was missing a good quad. This one hits the spot. I finish it off with about 2lbs of additional honey at the end of boil and it clocks in at almost 10% ABV. Woohoo! Best thing is, because my wife does not like such strong beers it's all mine. Just don't drive afterwards :-)

I give it three weeks in primary and about two months in secondary. Typically I use harvested yeast and we also make a tasty bread from the trub. Baked with wood fire, of course.

still waiting

I just bottled this after a 4 month wait. I sampled just a taste from the bottom of the carboy and I have to say it has an amazing flavor even at this stage. I was a little worried having read several other reviews of people not having their batch carbonate. I had a partial bottle and figured what would it hurt to open it at a week in to see if it was carbonating and was greeted with a nice hiss when I popped the top. should be ready to sample the first bottle on Christmas day

Dark, strong and sweet

I had Belgian Tripels on a few trips to Belgium so i wanted to try making a homebrew. I never heard of a Belgian Quad but it is a beer style. I am pleased with this brew. My was 8.1%ABV, it carbonated nicely, and has a warm alcohol feel but not overwhelming. I am ordering it again.

My favorite beer!

I made this a while ago and I have to say it is fantastic! I tried to let it age but somehow I kept ending up with a few bottles in my refridgerator here and a few there. I did have some that made it to the 10 month mark. This beer gets better and better as it ages. I just ordered the kit to make it again. This time, I hope to start drinking it at ten months and see how it goes from there. I highly recommend this beer. It is outstanding!
