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.

Lectvay (191) - Boise, Idaho, USA - JUN 4, 2014
Dark brown, medium head, aroma is pretty intense, cinnamon, cloves, molasses. Taste is bright up front, then extremely rich and sweet, with a bitter and boozy aftertaste. Its like an Abbey quad that is coated in a gooey, bourbony gel. Really terrific.

reebtogi (6204) - Edmonton, Alberta, CANADA - MAY 10, 2017
650ml bottle pours a deep amber color with finger of off-white head that leaves some spotted lacing on the glass. Aroma is bourbon and alcohol with some hints of caramel and dark fruit notes. Taste is bourbon and alcohol with a light spicy hop bitterness and a caramel malty sweetness. Medium bodied with moderate carbonation. Overall, a bit too much bourbon on the palate, but still a quality brew that is sure to please many.

superspak (5397) - Michigan, USA - JAN 31, 2017
22 ounce bottle into chalice; 2016 vintage, bottled on 4/19/2016. Pours fairly hazy/cloudy deep ruby red/brown color with a 1 finger dense khaki head with great retention, that reduces to a thin cap that lingers. Light spotty soapy lacing clings on the glass. Aromas of raisin, plum, fig, date, cherry, apple, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, brown bread, vanilla, coconut, bourbon, and toasted oak; with lighter notes of banana, pepper, clove, chocolate, tobacco, leather, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness. Very nice aromas with good balance and complexity of fruity/earthy yeast, bourbon barrel, and dark/bready malt notes; with good strength. Taste of big raisin, plum, fig, date, cherry, apple, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, brown bread, vanilla, coconut, bourbon, and toasted oak; with lighter notes of banana, pepper, clove, chocolate, tobacco, leather, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness. Light yeast and bourbon/oak spiciness on the finish; with lingering notes of dark fruits, caramel, brown sugar, toffee, molasses, brown bread, vanilla, coconut, bourbon, toasted oak, and yeast/oak/toasted earthiness on the finish for a while. Fantastic complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, bourbon barrel, and dark/bready malt sweetness; with a nice malt/yeast/oak spiciness balance, and zero cloying flavors after the finish. Slightly drying from bourbon/oak spiciness as well. Medium carbonation and medium-full body; with a very smooth, moderately creamy/silky, and lightly sticky/chalky/grainy/tannic balanced mouthfeel that is great. Alcohol is very well hidden; a mild warmth lingering after the finish, with zero barrel booziness. Overall this is an outstanding barrel aged Quadrupel style. All around awesome complexity, robustness, and balance of fruity/earthy yeast, bourbon barrel, and dark/bready malt sweetness; very smooth and dangerously easy to sip on for the huge ABV. Awesome barrel balance/integration with the base beer; and well rounded yeast/malt complexity. A highly enjoyable offering.

SG111 (1671) - 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.
