Or is Mooi & Meedogenloos (Beautiful & Ruthless) a Quadrupel-ish?
Depending on the batch the label might say one thing or the other, but the beer is always somewhere between the two.
It certainly starts out looking like an Imperial Stout, dark black with a nice brown head.
There isn’t much in the way of aroma with this beer. First impressions on tasting are of a rich dessert Stout but then you notice the higher level of carbonation and the complexity of the malts which introduce some Quad-like qualities.
If we had to put it in one camp or the other we’d have a hard job deciding which.
So we’re just going to sit back, enjoy the beer and take some time to contemplate the question.
You’ve got almost 5 years on the best before date with this one, but we can’t help thinking that if you wanted to keep it for longer it would age beautifully.
