In Quadrupel Ale Sharp's have combined pale, crystal and chocolate malts with Centennial, Hallertauer and Aurora hops.
Fermented with three strains of yeast then matured on fresh Simcoe hops for a month at -1 degreesC, it is then seeded with a fourth yeast strain for bottle conditioning.
Transcending beer styles, Quadrupel Ale is dark ruby in colour and boasts an aroma of perfumed alcoholic fruit. In the mouth a full bittersweet fruitiness leads to a warming alcoholic finish.
Quadrupel Ale is best suited to pairing with mature cheeses and rich chocolate desserts.
