This Belgian-style Quadrupel ale is full-bodied and robust, boldly showcasing flavors of sweet dried fruits delivered on a smooth, velvety palate. Specialty malts and roasted barley give this beer a sweet malty aroma that complements its complex fruitiness. Brewed in the Belgian tradition with dark candi sugar and a Trappist ale yeast, Coming Home Holiday Ale is rich and flavorful, meant to be shared and savored among friends. At 10% alcohol by volume, our Quad pours a deep garnet color with a dense, pillowy head. Aromas are sweet and rummy, reminding us of holiday treats. Subtle hop flavor gives enough bitterness to balance the brown sugar and caramel flavors, mingling with figs, raisins, and dates. A robust beer on its own, this deceptively drinkable ale complements gamey meats, fruitcake, or an after-dinner cigar.

    Not as nice as the brandy barreled version, which accentuated the best in this beer, but a decent foray into the world of quads. abundance of adrk fruit and a bit of dry, spicy yeast on the back end. a touch too sweet, making it one-dimensional, but really, not too shabby.

    750ml bottle, bottled on 10/27/11 (I think). Pours a hazy dark gold with a big creamy white head that retains well and laces the glass.

    The aroma is bready malts, musty earthy yeast and some banana.

    The flavor is sweet sugary malts with some earthy yeast and banana. The mouthfeel is light to medium bodied with smooth carbonation.

    Overall, a muddled tripel. Too sweet.

    750ml bottle -

    Not sure really what made this a Quad instead of a "regular" Belgian strong, but either way it was a really nice beer. Aroma carried tons of dark fruit (lots of raisins/dates) with a good dose of brown sugar. Flavor echoed the aroma with the dark fruit with something like rum or brandy flavors too (perhaps mingling w/ the alcohol), and some dried cherries on the back end (kinda reminded me a bit of cough syrup). Nice beer, but not sure how it meets the Quad definition. Maybe it’s just a loose interpretation.

    Sampled on 11/20/2010. This Belgian Quad pours a medium to dark copper brown color from a 750ml bottle. Small to medium sized white foamy head, with nice lacing and good retention. The aroma is fruity and sweet, candi sugar and caramel. A medium to full bodied Belgian Quadruple. The malts are fruity and sweet, dark fruit, raisins and plums. The hops are earthy. The Belgian yeasts and dark candi sugar really stand out in this beer. Nicely carbonated which helps mask some of the sweetness. A nice blend of sweetness, maltiness and fruitiness. A very nice holiday sipping beer. Hides the alcohol very well. Mouthfeel is full and round. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
