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.

650 mL bottle poured into a snifter.

Appearance - Deep brown body. Small khaki head with a thin collar.

Smell - Nutty. Bourbon. Molasses and brown sugar.

Taste - Surprisingly more interesting. Nutty right up front. Very sweet. It has a nice fruitiness to it. Gets a little bit bitter in the back end. Boozy sweet finish.

Mouthfeel - Boozy. Sweet as hell. Heavy body. Medium carbonation.

Overall - Quite enjoyable. A slow, sipper of a beer, of course, but worth the alcohol and sugar investment.

Solid....lots of barrel, figs and toffee. Think some time might help the barrel integrate better as it seemed a bit disjointed....but, as always, I'm likely full of shit
