No So Quad

Not So Quad (btw the color is darker than reality)

I was hoping to brew a big Belgian Quad inspired brew.   Something north of 9% ABV.   The goal was to age it and keep around for next winter.

Well you know what they say about the best laid plans.   Yes my brew day went a bit awry with this one.   I’ll spare you the details.   Let’s just say this turned out to more like a Dubbel; hence the name “No So Quad”.  

This brew is being naturally conditioned/carbonated with Belgian Candi Syrup in keg.   The glass above was from the excess I conditioned in a 2 liter bottle.

I like the results from the 2 liter bottle so I have high hopes for the keg.  Only time will tell how this one ultimately turns out.
