Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee 2015: The Best Yet

Firestone Walker Stickee Monkee 2015 releases on May 23rd.

Firestone Stickee Monkee is a Belgian-style quadrupel, aged over a year in Woodford Reserve, Elijah Craig, and Four Roses bourbon barrels. The brewery calls is a “Central Coast Quad” thanks to the California twist this classic-style strong ale undergoes before bottling.

 

“Some folks have questioned the moniker ‘Central Coast Quad’ that we assigned to Stickee Monkee, but we stand by it,” said Brewmaster Matt Brynildson. “We brew this beer true to the Quadrupel style right up until we rack it to barrels for our own local California Central Coast twist.”

2015 marks just the second time that Firestone Walker has been bottled. Firestone Walker’s Matt Bryndilson personally believes that people will go “apeshit” to taste the 2015 Stickee, after tasting how well this edition came out.

Style: Quadrupel (w/ Candi Sugar. Barrel Aged. Bourbon.)
Availability: 22oz Bottles. 3,500 cases. Select U.S. Markets

Upland Brewing Stoaked: March 1st

Upland Brewing Stoaked

Upland Brewing Stoaked is preparing for March, 2015 release. The Bloomington, Indiana brewery has aged a quadrupel on fresh oak, resulting in a 10% flavorful beast of a beer.

Stoaked is a luscious Belgian style quadrupel that pours a deep amber hue with shades of copper and ruby. Alluring aromas of ripe fig, cherry and subtle spice and caramel pull you in. Maturing for months on oak, Stoaked reveals a profound vanilla character and malty sweetness, supported by a creamy mouthfeel. With a clean finish and a lingering sweetness, this beer is dangerously drinkable for a beverage of its strength.

There have been a couple of variants of Upland Stoaked out in the wild, including one with berries, all draft only. (Presumably tap room and festivals.) Look for Stoaked in 12oz bottles and draft.

Style: Belgian-Style Quadrupel (Oak Aged.)
Availability: 12oz Bottles (4 packs), Draft.
Release: 3/1/2015

Wild Heaven Eschaton Finally Bottled

Wild Heaven Eschaton has finally arrived in bottles. The Belgian-style quadrupel as been a bottle hopeful since its debut in 2011.

Eschaton is a one-of-a-kind oaked all-malt Quadrupel (or “Belgian Strong Dark” if you prefer) that abounds with dark fruit and pit fruit flavors as well as earthy spiciness. Vanilla oak and warm viniferous notes assert themselves as the beer warms to reveal additional layers of delicious complexity.

“Eschaton” is greek for the end of the world, or climax of history. Wild Heaven Eschaton is available in 12oz bottles, and draft while the world goes on. (Maybe a little bit after too.)

The brewery is also introducing cans in 2015.

Style Belgian-style Quadrupel (Aged on Pinot Noir Oak Chips)
Availability: 12oz bottles (New), Draft.  Year-round.
