"Inspired by the Trappist brewers of Belgium, a Quadrupel is a Belgian style ale of great strength with bolder flavor compared to its Dubbel and Tripel sister styles. Typically a dark creation that ranges within the deep red, brown and garnet hues. Full bodied with a rich malty palate. Phenols are usually at a moderate level. Sweet with a low bitterness yet a well perceived alcohol." as described by BeerAdvocate.
The twist I'll be putting on the brew today is that I'll be adding two pounds of pinot noir juice which will contribute 25% of total extract for the recipe. Going to be aging this on oak for at least a month. Using three types of crystal malt, including crystal rye. Racked to secondary fermentation and added medium toast French oak chips. Quad was at 11% abv when racked.
