COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A Belgian Quad by recipe, but aging it in spirits barrels garners its own category: Central Coast Quad. A beer formulated to sit on the sweeter and malty side so that we could utilize it for blending. Turbinado brown sugar from Mexico and Belgian candi sugar add wonderful molasses flavors. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over this beer: toasted oak, coconut, leather and cigar tobacco.

Poured from fresh 2015 bomber, pours a clear very dark brown with a really thin tan head that dissipates very quickly, aroma had a good amount of caramel and malt mixed in with dark fruit and fresh tobacco and leather, flavor has a nice bourbon front end with a dark fruit and malt finish, abv is very well hidden, good stuff.

BeerBunker (898) - Burbank, Illinois, USA - JUN 5, 2015
22oz bottle. Pours brown with a small tan head. Aroma is of wood, sugar, grain, and alcohol. Taste is of wood, sugar, dark fruit, grain, and tobacco. Lingering oak flavor. After it warms, a lot more dark fruit comes out. The alcohol is definitely present. Mouthfeel is creamy and sticky. Body is sticky and heavily carbonated. This drinks very easy given the alcohol. I enjoyed this a lot.

22oz bottle of 2015 vintage. Pours a dark brown color without much head. Low carbonation, overpowered a little by the spirit flavors.

The smell is complex sweet full of bourbon caramel toffee & malt. The taste is complex as well sweet but not overly so full of bourbon, caramel, & toffee just a great experience. One the best mouthfuls i’ve personally encountered. This is a fantastic beer that should be enjoyed by all beer lovers. Firestone Walker’s best IMHO!
