Notes/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 adds wonderful molasses flavors that are reminiscent of Belgian candi sugar. It has a full body and lush texture with barrel expression all over this beer: toasted oak, coconut, leather and cigar tobacco.

2014 batch, just hit the east coast.

A: Pours an extremely dark brown with a little red. Tall, frothy medium brown head. Head fades at a moderate pace with decent retention. Zero lacing however. Not even the lightest little speck.

S: Heavy caramel from the bourbon. Sugary sweet aroma. Sweet generic berries and dark fruits (raisin and fig primarily I'd say). Lightest hint of chocolate? I would say loads of belgian candi sugar but I don't even think they used it in this recipe. Sweet and heavy, regardless.

T: Bourbon character up front but not as pronounced as in the nose. Seriously sweet. Loads of caramel, sugar and candied dark fruits up front. Light cocoa in the middle and a heavy, dark bread malt mixing with more caramel. Nice toasted sugar in the aftertaste with light oak. Lingering oaky, earthy aftertaste.

M: Thick, heavy, viscous and sweet. Lower carbonation.

O: Seriously big and sweet quad. Barrel-aging is quite nice, adding even more complexity and....sweetness with caramel and toasted sugars. Loads of bourbon, fruit, chocolate and sugary sweetness. What's not to love?

Pours nice rich brown color..almost mahogany. Nose is sweet and honey like.. This is sweet and high abv without a doubt. Taste follows nose and more...almost tastes like a piece of candy..toffee indeed. Smooth and oaky..like a fine whiskey. Mouthfeel is glorious and rich. Overall a rich unforgettable brew.
