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.

yngwie (14923) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - AUG 9, 2013
On tap at Firestone Walker Barrelworks. It pours a dark brown body and a small, beige head. A bit alcoholic on the nose, with dried fruits and some bourbon. Chocolate notes too. The flavor is sweet and with a solid dose of dried fruits and chocolate. Decent bitterness too, and alcohol. Full body, soft carbonation. Lasting finish. Overall, too warming, but sure lovely. 130809

Bottle shared in London - thanks to Bruce! Pours clear caramel-brown with a creamy tan head. The nose has lots of ripe fruits, some brown sugar, bread, toffee. Hugely sweet flavor with lots of creamy caramel, vanilla iced cream, rich brown bread, dates. Full bodied with fine carbonation. Finishes warm and sticky with lots of gooey ripe fruits, dates and figs, more creamy caramel and toffee. Great stuff overall.

brokensail (12509) - Orange County, California, USA - DEC 12, 2010
A: The pour is a dark amber color, perhaps leaning towards brown, with a tan head. S: The usual sweet, sugar notes of a barleywine are here. I get brown sugar, caramel, and toffee, but there’s a weird nuttiness to this beer that seems out of place. T: This tastes like almost like a really creamy nut brittle with extra nuts. There’s a fair amount of alcohol presence as well, a touch of oak, and some good vanilla notes. M: The body is medium with a nice creaminess and a low to moderate level of carbonation. D: This was a weird beer. In fact, several of the blending components for FW14 aren’t all that great, but somehow they make a delicious final product.

bhensonb (12150) - Woodland, California, USA - JUN 7, 2014
Bomber from Total Wine in Sacramento, CA. 2014 vintage. Pours dark cola color with a few bubbles. Aroma is sort of stewed dark fruits with dark malts. Full bodied, at least. Flavor is like plums and dates and dark fruits with a little alcohol and smooth, smooth, treacly dark malt. This is not an ASE, IMHO. FW says Quad, undt auch Ich! Damn delicious quad. Finishes with a bit of heat to cut down the malt. Did I say delicious? Understatement.
