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.

Hazy deep amber beer. Tidy pale tan head - bubbly. Semi dry palate. Rich caramel and dried fruits. Mild aniseed alcohol. Mild banana and bubblegum esters. Semi dry finish that is mildly warming. Not bad.

SDalkoholic (2375) - Linda Vista, California, USA - DEC 26, 2012
On tap @ Hamiltons Tavern during SD Beer Week: Poured into a proper trappist glass as a glowing amber hue with a shade of brown tinting. Created some development of foam on top but quickly thinned out leaving the liquid naked. The aroma is initially fruity with a funky strain of yeast that comes alive as being an authentic Belgian strain while a heavy presence of alcohol is easily found with the nose. The drink is sweet and displays the taste of fruity yeast that was so in the aroma except the fruit becomes more apparent and suggests such natural fruits as banana, dark rich plum, and the taste of a strawberry smoothie that included both the top green stem part and berry. Palate is refined with steady carbonation levels while an aftertaste of sugary malts and candy sugar end this beer on a good note as a good quad.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7489) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - DEC 10, 2012
From the 12/2012 3R6P tasting. +++ Sampled from a 22 oz brown bottle this beer poured a bright caramel-orange color with a small foamy tan head that left a bit of lacing. The aroma was sour caramel, nut, booziness, pepper and faint vague fruits. The flavor was tangy sour caramel, pepper, apple, nut, pear and more booziness. Long pepper, caramel and fruit finish. Moderately full bodied but the booziness distracted. Interesting.

Bomber purchased a year ago at BevMo in Carmel Mountain ($8.99). Pours into tulip a murky reddish amber color with one finger of beige foam that very soon reduces into nothingness. Aroma of sticky figs and prunes, buttered caramel, coconut, and brown sugar. Flavor of rich toffee, dark sticky fruit, nutty bready malts, dark honey, molasses, vanilla, and some spice. Finishes moderately sweet and with a slightly boozy finish (though the high ABV is generally well concealed). Pretty good quad. Will be interested to see how the other bottle I have ages. (34, 752)

marcus (9970) - Sacramento, California, USA - JUN 26, 2012
Bottle from Total Wine, Sacramento. Pours dark amber with no head and a sweet fruity aroma. There is a hearty sweet dark malt flavor with some plum and a warm alcohol trail.

Shared with Strkyzone on Facebook Chat. The 22 oz bomber poured a dark copper with a tan head. Nose is malty, with dark fruit - raisins, plums, banana, candy,and some cloves. Full body and a very smooth mouthfeel. The high alcohol is very well hidden but still sneaks up on you. The flavor is of dark ripe fruit. Warm, sweet, and alcoholic finish. A very delicious brew that stays consistent from first to last drop and keeps surprising you with new subtle flavors.

Strykzone (7180) - Wood River, Illinois, USA - JUN 6, 2012
Bomber from Hayduke. We both had a bottle and enjoyed it together via facebook chat. This poured pretty much clear mid brown and had no head at all. A nose of fruit and molasses. First sip is dark fruit and toffee. Especially cherries. Alcohol is hidden nicely but my legs sure feel funny. There might be just a hint of spice but it is hidden almost as well as the alcohol. This beer stayed steady throughout the bottle despite temperature changes. This was tasty and dangerous.
