COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It was 2011 when we first released Two Tortugas Belgian Quad as our holiday ale. It was supposed to be a one-time release for the holidays, but your feedback demanded otherwise. Six batches and numerous medals later, our Belgian Quad is back in all its original glory. Two Tortugas has aromas of dark fruit and caramel, with a slight hint of bubblegum from the Belgian Abbey yeast. This beer is robust and full-bodied with rich malty flavors of toffee, plums, and dates. Drink it now or lay it down – Two Tortugas’ journey is just getting started.

I had this on tap at Out of the Park Pizza. It’s a big malty beer that finishes sweetly, with notes of cherry. The big alcohol percentage is well hidden.

A really solid big bodied maltfest. Really liked this brew. A bit of spices but really a powerpack of malts that are awesome!

On tap at Downey brewing it has a dark amber color. Not a strong aroma but what there is its toasted fruits. The taste has caramel and some honey to it, kind of like a candied sugar. In the end there there is more dark fruits. Texture is very rich with a smoothh finish.

Pours a clear ruby color with a thin white head. Aroma bubblegum, vanilla and banana bread. Taste is sweet, fruity, cherry, spicy, herbal and delicious. I’m more impressed than I thought possible coming from Karl Strauss.

Pours a dark orange in color. Really quite sugary sweet but not cloying at all. Seems a little weak for a quad but an interesting take for a Cali Christmas.

Very interesting Belgian style. Smells of cherries, and pours a deep red. Quite sweet taste of cherries and vanilla. But not too overwhelming. Sipping beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Bomber. Shared bottle on Christmas. Pours a dark brown, caramel color. Smells of toffee and dark fruits. A malt lovers dream, smooth on the palate will just a hint of the alcohol flavor lingering. If you like holiday barleywines then this the the beer for you.
