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.

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 bakers 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 Id suggest waiting a touch before consuming given the opportunity. Serving type: on-tap

Thick and dark, flavors of brown sugar, molasses, dried fruit, and coffee. Not as much yeast spiciness as in some other quads. Alcohol is very well hidden. Excellent.

12 ounce bottle shared. The beer is a clear dark brown with a khaki head of foam. Aroma has big whiskey notes with lots of brown sugar and sticky toffee notes. Majorly sweet and boozy. Big body and moderate carbonation.

Pours a dark brown with little head that does leave ample lacing; bourbon and fruitcake and toffee on the nose; alcohol present to a string degree in the palate. Definitely a sipping beer. Superb.

Wow. Complexity and smoothness in a strong ale. Wow. It's pretty close to perfect. 13.4% alcohol is hard to believe given smoothness. On tap at Warrens Ale House. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Dark brown with ruby highlights. Minimal head which dissipated immediately. Booze, dark dried fruit and burnt cane sugar are the central aromas. Sweet with little to no bitterness and plenty of alcohol to balance the sweetness. Long fruitcake finish. Quite lovely.
