Notes: 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.

2021 vintage

Sweet overall but with a lot layers to keep it interesting. Brown sugar and toffee up front plus some subtle raisin. The end adds a nice lightly tart cherry note and subtle oak. The bourbon notes are smooth, mellow, and well incorporated.

2016 Vintage. Poured at 54°. Brown with ruby body; good clarity; quick beige head; thin ring, poor cap retention, no lace; thin legs. Fruity esters; caramel malt, leather, tobacco, candied yams. Taste follows with caramel apple sweetness, bourbon, oak, and brown sugar/molasses. Feel is thin silk, body is medium, carbonation is light; faint warmth from 11.6%. abv. Overall a WC BA Quad style!, no oxidation after almost 6 years, the nose is heady fruity corse earthy aromas, the taste is subtle - rich umami base with dancing sweeter notes of sugar, fruit and Belgian yeast in the higher register. A beer worthy of aging and May even advance another 2-3 years taste-wise - onward Science!

2017 bottle
Consumed 5/23/21

Stickee has always been a favorite for me. I love a great quad and Firestone does an amazing job adding a barrel aged component. The nose is wonderful. The barrel is prominent and it’s perfectly sweet. I don’t know what the aging has done to this bottle. It’s super smooth but was it harsh before? I doubt it. I’d probably drink this fresh in the future. A world class beer and perhaps the best quad you can find? One day I’ll find a Westy 12 to test that theory.

2014 Vintage
A: Poured into a snifter to a deep brown beer which is topped by a finger of dense and slightly rocky light tan head which fades slowly to a collar around the edge of the glass
S: Smells of tons of dark fruits, caramel and toffee along with a nice touch of oak
T: Taste is caramel and toffee up front before some dark fruits come in. Nice bready malt with a huge amount of sugary sweetness along with some hints of oak and vanilla. On the swallow there's more brown sugar sweetness, dark fruits, caramel, toffee, oak, and vanilla.
M: This beer is on the heavier side of things with a silky feel on the palate. Carbonation is soft but adequate for the style while the ABV ensures that this beer has a dying finish.
O: Overall this beer rocks the house. A huge amount of complexity makes this a beer that demands to be sipped and savored. Alcohol is hidden very well. It's also held up very well to the test of time and shows no signs of off flavors.

2014 Vintage, a fantastic Quad! Aged quite well every drop was savory of this bourbon raisin, caramel treat. The alcohol does sneak up on you a bit.
