Availability: Rotating

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.

Enjoyed on tap at FOBAB. Served in my FOBAB taster glass.

A: Pours a semi clear brown color with a tan head forming on the pour. Nice retention on the head, it recedes slowly to a thick ring and leaves nice splotches of lace.

S: Dark fruits, caramel and some light baker's chocolate. The barrel is there faintly with some light bourbon and oak.

T: Light bourbon and some heat up front. Sweet honey, dark fruits and toffee all present. There is a spicy hop flavor as well that seems to creep up and recedes at different spots during each sip.

M: Medium bodied with a medium carbonation level.

O: I thought this was solid overall. There was a little too much heat from the booze for me even at 12%. The beer did get better as warmed up so I'd suggest waiting a touch before consuming given the opportunity.

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.
