BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Firestone Walker Brewing Co.
California, United States
firestonewalker.com

Style: Quadrupel (Quad)

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
It has been said that the only constant is change and the same is true for barrel-aged beers. Cut from a similar recipe, this barrel-aged Quad evolves and shows a different face each year; a result of time spent aging in the barrel. 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; toasted oak, coconut, leather and rich cigar tobacco.

What a flavorful beer. Tastes of fresh baked banana bread. Nice strong alcohol flavor as well, not overpowering with alcohol taste, though. Highly recommend!!!

AROMA: Lots of molasses and caramel, brown sugar, tobacco, leather, vanilla, mild banana, and lots of dark dried fruit.
TASTE: Yup it's all there, as well as a nice woodiness and mild alcohol, and a little spicy note.
FEEL: Medium full carbonation, medium full body, sticky, and dryer on the finish.
OVERALL: Damn good stuff.

I finally got to try Stickee Monkee Quadrupel from Firestone Walker, and I was not disappointed. It really was delicious.

Look: dark brown thin mocca colored head

Aroma: molasses dark fruit, banana

Taste: The flavor is dark raisin bread, dark fruit, figs, caramel, banana, molasses, fairly sweet but very drinkable.

Feel: medium body

Amazing taste of malt, on sweeter side, the belgian candi type, barrel taste of vanilla. Let it warm up, more flavors emerge, the perfect quad made great by aging

2014 Vintage.
Moderate to vigorous pour yields a 3/4 inch light tan head over a very dark brown/mahogany body with some lacing. Head dissipates to a ring in a few minutes. Nose of dark fruit, chocolate, molasses, and leather (as it warms.) Taste of a bit of dark dried fruit, vanilla, chocolate, brown sugar, molasses, and a bit of coconut. Wow! Near velvet feel and overall, a world class offering.
Cheers!
