COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

SG111 (1482) - New York, USA - JAN 1, 2017
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 On Tap at Station House, Forest Hills. Pours deep brown, murky, tan head. Aroma is bourbon, chocolate, oak, leather, slight Belgian esters, some toffee, caramel, solidly complex. Flavor is Belgian esters, raisins, dark fruits ala Belgian quad, bourbon, woody oak, chocolate. Really nice barrel aged quad. I?m glad I read that it started out as a quad and sort of morphed into this because that?s the only way to explain this one I feel. Really nice.

AirForceHops (6574) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - DEC 31, 2016
UPDATED: JAN 1, 2017 650 ml bottle thanks to T.J. 2015 vintage. Color is murky dark brown/ black. Dissipating head. T.J made me sample this blind at first..... Aroma is Caramel, coconut, toffee, bourbon, brown sugar, and the lightest oak.

What a way to settle up on 2016. The best brew I have had all year. Strong and good. Initial sweetness gets balanced out by yeast, and a huge barrel character. Coconut flakes, chocolate, dates, figs. Bourbon character is here with a strong flavor but not a strong alcohol presents. Drinks more like an 6 or 7% beer. Body is full but NOT syrupy or overly sweet. Gosh damn, the construction of this beer is silly good! If you cracked this fresh... you are an idiot. Wait at least a year to open this. This will age for years to come. Absolutely awesome!

Light to medium roast aroma, cone hops and light sugars. Desk born to black. Tan head and to bubbs. Touch of heat, thick viscosity mouthfeel a sipper for sure. Extremely enjoyable.

wombat23 (972) - Texas, USA - DEC 11, 2016
Shared 22 oz. bottle. Pours almost black with a beige head. Aroma of sweet malt, caramel, booze, and oak. Similar taste, with additional flavors of leather, molasses, and dark fruits. Finish is sweet and boozy. Could use some aging.

Dark brown color. The aroma is mild, but the flavor doesnt leave room for doubt. This is like drinking Christmas pudding, plenty of raisins and rum; there must be some bourbon or oak aging too; the alcohol presence is evident.
Excellet sipper.

beerplace (1153) - Vancouver, British Columbia, CANADA - DEC 2, 2016
On tap at Elizabeth Station. Pours a dark brown with no head. Aroma is bourbon notes, dark fruits, candy sweetness. Taste is dark fruits, candies, some boozy notes, high level of sweetness. Quite boozy stuff, oversweet, not very full-bodied, despite high alcohol content. Still good, though.

ciocanelu (1728) - Timisoara, ROMANIA - NOV 26, 2016
Dark mahogany color with tan head. Aroma is really complex with lots of caramel, fudge, bourbon, brown sugar and oak. Taste starts with caramel and brown sugar, a slight molasses note, bourbon and finishes slightly bitter. Medium body, quite sticky and syrupy, low carbonation. A really complex beer with nice dried fruits, bourbon and barrel character.

Aroma: oaky, sweet and boozy; Appearance: black amber with thin white head that dissipates slowly; Taste: follows nose with good level of complexity; buttery with lots of molasses and sugar; Palate: heavy body with long, sweet finish; Overall: intense and slightly cloying; very good but definitely not for every day.
