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.

Consumed June 2nd, 2014 from a bottle purchased at FW Barrelworks in Buellton. Poured into a small snifter.

Dark brown liquid with obscure deep garnet highlights. Beer has virtually no carbonation and as a result no head to speak of. Only the tiniest little ring of foam around the crown. Disappointing.

Aroma is strong and redolent with cane sugar and booze. Faint dates and chocolate. Not bad, but also not delicious.

Flavor is moderately sweet with a cinnamon note. Some bitter wood and hot spirit notes. Toasted coconut. Mild milk chocolate. Lacking in the expected bready character.

Mouthfeel is still and thick, leaning towards cloying. The low carbonation has really done this beer in.

A rare miss from Firestone Walker; the elements are there, just not in a pleasing balance. An incidental note: I have had this one several times on its own over the years, but never reviewed it. However, it doesn't seem to be very different from how I remember it.
