Another great brew from Firestone and one of my new favorite Barleywines. There is A LOT going on here. Huge smell, huge taste, and huge ABV! Lots of boozey belly warmth from this! Smell is thick with brown sugar, leather, cherry, chocolate, and oak. Taste is very sweet, but complex with vanilla, butter, dark espresso, chocolate, and of course bourbon. There is no booze in the flavor at all and you would never believe it was 16%.

worth the hype, more of a barleywine than a quad though, although i suspect thats what they are getting at by calling it a central coast quad instead of a belgian one, but it exhibits a whole lot more barleywine to me. nevermind definitions and classifications though, this is insanely good beer. deep but royal red/brown in color, like good root beer in shade, but super thick and viscous, sticky as taffy, and not very carbonated, but it doesnt need to be. the nose on this is all grain, caramelized malt sugars abound, with notes of toffee and butterscotch, raisin, plum, fig, molasses, honey, and bourbon right from the bottle. its intensely boozy, but in a refined and intentional way. i get the malt layering expected in a quad, but the lack of any real belgian yeast character in the flavor puts this squarely in the barleywine world for me. scorching sugars and vanilla bourbon predominate, but it never really ends up all the sweet considering how much sugar is in here mid palate. oak mellows it for sure, and the booze cuts it well i think. layers and layers of grain nuance keep coming, i absolutely love it. i was so sad to have missed the bottles when they came around, so i am thankful to hops and pie for giving me the chance to finally try this one on tap. its worthy of its high praise, very firestone walker too, very barreled and big, just delicious big beer here. a musty try, more interesting than sucaba i think, but thats just me.

The complex mouthfeel of a top tier quad with heavy barrel, vanilla leathery age and bourbon notes. I haven't been wowed by Parabole or Scucaba, but love DDBA.
thIs is best in breed for an aged quad. I've had boulevard BBQ , blasphemy etc...
This is fantastic. The overall presence of all the combined elements result in a transcendent epic ale
