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.

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Dark brown, medium head, aroma is pretty intense, cinnamon, cloves, molasses. Taste is bright up front, then extremely rich and sweet, with a bitter and boozy aftertaste. It’s like an Abbey quad that is coated in a gooey, bourbony gel. Really terrific.

Bottle. Holy crap what a great brew. I’m not normally a fan of sweet beers but this one does it right. Nose of molasses, leather and candied plums. Taste features cola, molasses, brown sugar and mixed dark pitted fruits. Palate was lush and sticky with too much sugar. This could probably be used to pour on pancakes in place of syrup. Delicious, but will someone please pass the insulin.

juffage (136) - Leeds, West Yorkshire, ENGLAND - SEP 13, 2015
2014 vintage bomber bought at Brew-denell 2015 at Brudenell Social Club. Comes in fancy box, accentuating the beer’s similarities to an oversized cigar. Vanilla flavoured belts. Sweet, oaky, leathery molasses booze. Spicy peppery taste at first. Lots of oak on the nose. Cantaloupe and autumnal leaves in the aftertaste. Honey. Silky smooth mouthfeel, not very thick. I’m not a huge fan of quads, but this still left me impressed.
