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.

LiquorHound (25) - Texas, USA - APR 13, 2015
Tasted from tap: Nose - light chocolate malt and cognac-like fruits. Taste - medium (to slightly above) mouthfeel. The milk chocolate and dried fruit flavors dominate with a tingle on the tongue right up front (like grape skins). After mid palate a malty caramel becomes noticeable and linger long into the finish. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone
