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.

Sampled from a 22oz bottle I picked up while in the Bay Area.

A deep brown with a hint of red and great clarity. Aroma includes toffee, prunes, raisins and more. Flavor follows with lots of dark fruit complexity and a mild sweetness. It's firm and powerful but balanced and smooth. The alcohol is clearly there but not dominant. Creamy with a nice low carbonation.

This is a powerful beer but with none of the rough edges you get with many American brewed big Belgians. Great stuff!

A: Deep brown in color. The head was tan/white and dissipated quickly.

S: Rich Belgian malts, toffee, tobacco, dates, and charred caramel.

T: Everything that a Quad should be. Big, bold, and flavorful. Sweet malts, great bourbon notes, and a crisp touch of Belgian yeast esters.

M: Big and rounded on the palate. Doesn't leave the mouth too fatigued.

O: Awesome beer. Will definitely drink again.
