The Quad is another Trappist style beer with a notoriously high alcohol level ranging between 10 to 12%. It is a full bodied beer usually with a darker amber or brown hue. The namesake of this beer, Saint Arnoldus, was a Belgian bishop who founded the abbey of st. Peter in Oudenburg. He is most famous for his efforts in limiting the spread of the plague through brewing and promoting the consumption of small beer (low alcohol percentage). This beer had all the benefits of being pathogen free through boiling, hop addition and controlled fermentation, yet was still hydrating enough to replace contaminated water. The aroma coming off the St. Arnoldus Quad is quite powerful and certainly something to take the time for. It is very fruity on the nose with a bread-like malt background and there is a noticeable alcohol presence. Most perceptible are berry, dark cherry, and raisin aromas. The flavour matches the smell closely. The beer has a strong fruit flavour and sweetness up front with a well-balanced lingering bitterness in the aftertaste. Fruit is again reminiscent of cherry, raisin, and berry. A bready and caramel maltiness background with a hint of nuttiness and chocolate to be discovered. The St. Arnoldus is full bodied and highly carbonated, but still finishes quite dry. A lot of alcohol warmth can be felt, especially as the beer reaches serving temperature. Best served warm at 10-14ºC. Suitable for aging; in the cellar this beer will improve with a few years on it.

    The beer pours a mahogany colour with clear edges and a thin brown head. Eventually, it appeared more like a brownish cream soda colour. The aroma was Belgian yeast, roasted malt, candy sugar, and dark fruit. The mouthfeel was medium to full bodied, and highly carbonated. The flavour was plums and raisins, burnt sugar, and roasted malt notes. An excellent Canadian version of an Belgian Quadrupel
