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

On tap last week at The Mayor Of Old Town. Lighter brown and clear appearance with a light brown head. Rich, malty aroma with notes of oak, vanilla, caramel, light coconut, candy sugar, leather, light molasses, toffee and light fruity esters. Similar flavor, adding a medium to heavy sweetness. Full body, with a smooth creamy feel. Rich and complex. Very niiiice.

Damico (2924) - Royersford, Pennsylvania, USA - JUL 26, 2015
Pours thick dark unclear amber with pretty much no head. Aroma is so beautiful like a toffee caramel bar and some sweet malts. The flavor brings big sweet raisins and snd rum and caramel with smooth spice like brown sugar as they did add it.

McNeillR (1758) - Edinburgh, SCOTLAND - JUL 12, 2015
Clearish cola brown, no head. Nose is bullish sweetness and soft yeasty buzz. Sweetness throughout, helps that the initial taste is full on coconut and cola nut buzz. Builds to a more creamy, brassy bitterness. Carbonation is fairly soft but the mouthfeel is fairly dense. Finishes a bit more burnt brass and brown sugar with a more tea-like rich linger. The ABV is laughable hear, maybe tasting sub 10% at most, but rich dessert wine buzz is satisfying throughout.

Bottle, Cheers Sir Tadalot, Beers I Hadn’t Known Were Gushers Daisy Tasting
