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.

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.

Serving type: on-tap

Served in a thin wine glass at Beelow's.

The combination of lots of time to kill and a recent paycheck means I can afford to pick up a bottle of Stickee Monkee at the bar. Let's do this shit. It pours a clear sunset topaz-sienna topped by a finger or so of sandstone foam. The nose comprises caramelized Belgian candi sugar, mild molasses, toasted oak, toasted coconut, light Connecticut tobacco, graham cracker, clove, light allspice, and a hint of candied orange peel. The taste brings in more of the same, the oak, spices, and sweet elements taking full command in a lovely display of cooperation. A small faction of booze enters into the equation, but it is mostly drowned out by the delicious din around it. The body is a hefty medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a lightly-syrupy feel. Overall, a damn fine beer, well worth my investment (and anyone else's, for that matter). Get some!
