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.

Thanks to JimN8916 for pointing me towards possibly the last bottle of Monkee sitting on the shelves of great San Diego: since I had a bit at a tasting, have been lusting after a full pour. 22 oz. bottle reluctantly shared with my wife. She’s lucky she’s hot.

The pour is a dark red tripping towards light black. Nose is a rich brown sugar sautéed with caramel, vanilla, & a touch of bourbon. Other than the sweetness, doesn’t smell like a Belgian at all.

Stickee Monkee is a beautiful barleywine…wait, what? Typical Firestone barrel-beauty is slobbering all over this beer. Wonderful bourbon notes, big vanilla rip, great woody branches spreading in the background. Underneath the barrel is rich caramel, brown sugga sweetness I could motorboat happily, &, if I use a bit of imagination, I can almost sense the Belgian yeast. I think. Smooth as fresh ice, though there is an alcoholic tingle in the back of the throat & forebrain. I could power through a whole bomber of this myself, easy. I might try if I find another one.

Firestone rarely disappoints & doesn’t here, either. An excellent barleywine. Quad. Sorry.
