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.

On tap at Karl Strauss, pours a clear amber orange with a small white head. Aroma brings out toffee, bready malt and light Christmas spices. Flavour is bold, with lots of dark fruits, bready caramel malt, sticky toffee and spices. Not an authentic quad but it’s really nicely done. Very good.

"a surprisingly excellent holiday ale. not that KS isn’t decent, but i had my odubts about a quad. on one hand, those doubts are legit. this in no way is like the traditional belgian "quads"...rochefort, bernardus...the color falls somewhere between the golden Stoic and darker belgians, and the aroma and flavor are more cinnamon and vanilla than belgian yeastiness, though some dark fruit is present too. the only beer i;ve had like this one is 21st Ammendment Monks Blood (which is pretty dang good) so i have to give this it’s due. not what i expected, but VERY tasty, and hides the abv about as well as any beer i’ve ever had."
