2017 Release. This beer had a cherry smell. It smelled like a candy. It had a sweet taste with a little alcoholic burn. There was no alcoholic smell. It had a nice spiciness. Overall, it was a great beer: it had the strong taste of my aged Dogfish Head 120 Minute IPA, but incredibly smooth. 4:35PM PT

Barrel-Aged Central Coast Quad

Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee - taster

2017

Brewed with Belgian candi sugar and aged in a selection of fine bourbon barrels, Stickee Monkee trailblazes its own category as a “Central Coast Quad.” The name Stickee Monkee is a nod to the Central Coast’s native Sticky Monkey flower, as well as a shout­‐out to the Belgian monks who pioneered the Quad style.

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.
