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.

Enjoyed on tap at FOBAB. Served in my FOBAB taster glass. A: Pours a semi clear brown color with a tan head forming on the pour. Nice retention on the head, it recedes slowly to a thick ring and leaves nice splotches of lace. S: Dark fruits, caramel and some light baker’s chocolate. The barrel is there faintly with some light bourbon and oak. T: Light bourbon and some heat up front. Sweet honey, dark fruits and toffee all present. There is a spicy hop flavor as well that seems to creep up and recedes at different spots during each sip. M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level. O: I thought this was solid overall. There was a little too much heat from the booze for me even at 12%. The beer did get better as warmed up so I’d suggest waiting a touch before consuming given the opportunity. Serving type: on-tap

Draft. Cranberry-hued, with very little head. Brown sugar, candied raisins and buttery French vanilla in the nose. Very sweet aroma. The beer was formulated to be sweet and malty for blending purposes, and it’s clear in the flavor. Raisin, fig, grape -- all the dark fruits, left out to ripen. A rough, alcoholic edge lingers on the tongue. Alcohol is intense, tongue-numbing -- I can’t feel my tongue -- and blazing thorough the nostrils. Very low, tingly carbonation, medium body. Sweet, boozy and inebriating. A little heavy on the barrel as well as a bit one-dimensional.
