Firestone-Walker Brewing Company “Stickee Monkee” Central Coast Quad 2014: Little defines the quadrupel style of beer except for exceedingly high alcohol, but Firestone-Walker’s attention-grabbing Stickee Monkee — which fits the bill at 13.4% — presents irrefutable evidence that there should be more “quads” out there.

Flavored with Mexican turbinado brown sugar and aged in barrel for a year on average, this is a luxury beer: thick and creamy in mouthfeel, sweet and toasty in flavor, and an altogether serious sipper, worthy of a spin in your wine glass and swish in your mouth.

It’s one of the many components for each year’s Anniversary Ale, but we’re happy to have it all by itself, especially since, like wine, it changes vintage to vintage.
