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.

Stately amber color, with a ring of head on an otherwise flat body. Not much aroma other than a twinge of malt. Finally some sweet caramel introduces itself. The body is full of fresh grains, warming, honeyed, and with Belgian spicy yeast.

22oz bottle. Pours a maroonish brown with small white head. Aroma is dark fruit, vanilla, yeast, booze. Flavors are...muddled? A bit roasty, a bit sweet, a bit fruity, a bit spicy, a bit boozy. Nothing really stands out. Surprisingly thin bodied; oily.

LtDan (1806) - Los Angeles County, California, USA - DEC 11, 2011
Appearance: Pours a dark red with a head that subsides to nothing.

Aroma: Dried dark fruits, juicy fruit gum.

Taste: Slight toasty malt, dried dark fruit, bubble gum, light spicy finish.

Mouthfeel: Syrupy withmoderate carb. Overall: A textbook example of an American made quadruple, very sweet, spicy and syrupy.

thetmaxx (913) - West Sacramento, California, USA - DEC 7, 2011
Poured into my Karl Strauss glass. Aroma is caramel, and burnt. Smells like a amber. Flavor is similar, sweet, caramely, blah. Too much like a amber for my liking. I dont detect the alcohol. It is thick and oily on the tounge.

bhensonb (14897) - Woodland, California, USA - DEC 3, 2011
Bomber from Beverages 4 Less in Santee, CA. Fred can fix ya up! Pours dark ruddy copper with no head. Aroma is dark fruit with touches of treacle and light spice. Smooth aroma. Full bodied. No trace of heat. Flavors of darkish fruit, touch of treacle, and a fair amount of grapeish malt. Some warming does show in the finish. Amazingly gracious ale.

hamilton23 (619) - Alpine, California, USA - NOV 26, 2011
Poured from 22oz bottle. Pours a nice caramel color with just a whisp of off-white head, very fizzy and thin head. Aroma is dried fruits, caramel and candied sugar. Taste follows the nose with just a bit of dried fruits and some spices. I needed to try one of these now and then lay it down for a year or more.

BucannonXC5 (1612) - San Diego, California, USA - OCT 15, 2011
UPDATED: OCT 21, 2011 Poured from a draft into a tulip at Karl Strauss in downtown San Diego, Calif. Maybe a -inch of head. Color appeared to be dark red on the top, but closer to black when looking at it straight on from the sides. Light lacing on the top. Light film on the sides. Smelled of caramel malts. Also butter, roasty hops and some dark fruits. Complex flavors that roll of the tongue beautifully. There was a floral/fruity front with a enjoyable smooth finish. Full body. Average carbonation. Smooth rules the day. I really liked this beer. The taste is obviously much better than the smell. It just feels so good on the tongue.
