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.

Bottle split at Bruce’s pad, with thanks to the host with the most, 28/11/14. Mahogany brown with a decent khaki covering that soon dissipates to edgework. Nose is dark fruit rinds, coconut shavings, sticky toffee pudding, light booze fumeage, coco powder, light spice. Taste comprises toasted brown sugar, dates, sweet licks, toffee fudge, raisens, dark fruit peel, light hop presence, prunce juice. Full bodied, viscous, smooth on the palate, sweet close. Decent strong if a little overly sweet, could do with a bit more bitterness to raise the balance for me.
