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.

BMan1113VR (7917) - Los Angeles, California, USA - DEC 20, 2011
Bottle. Pours with a hazy bronze hued body with a decently sized tan head that slowly fades to a ring. Good lace and some alcohol legs left behind on the sides of the glass. Aromas are strongly estery and malty. Lots of banana, even at a distance. Caramel, grainy, light chocolate, alcohol, grand manier, and pears. No hops aromas to speak of. Some caramelization. Flavors are alcohol forward, banana, light phenol (clove and some other spices), more esters, honey, malty, grainy, raisin-bran cereal, mild chocolate, orange essence/liquor. Ashy/dusty chocolate, mild table grapes. Complex if not scattered malt character. Light balancing bitterness. On the slightly sweet side overall. Alcohol is definitely there. Bigger body with medium-light carbonation. Warming. Pretty decent.
