25 Beers of Christmas: Gilded Goat’s Barrel-Aged Belgian Quad
It's the most wonderful time of the year...the time where we're celebrating one Fort Collins brewery every day in December! Welcome to the 25 Beers of Christmas.
Today's pick is Gilded Goat's Barrel-Aged Belgian Quad, a beer you might want to pair with a giant pretzel (spoiler alert: Gilded Goat has them, and they are DELICIOUS).
With a 10.5% ABV, this complex beer will definitely give you a sweet holiday buzz. Communication manager Chris describes the beer as:
[...]a blend of two batches that have been aged in California Cabernet barrels for 8 months and 18 months, making a complex beer with rich overtones of malty sweet ﬂavors, Cabernet wine, and banana esters. You'll pick up ﬂavors of dried cherries, raisins, plums, oak, red wine, and spice, with a sweet ﬁnish.
Sounds perfect for a cold Christmas morning, don't you think? You can grab this beer (and a pretzel, which I think you can tell I'm craving) at the Gilded Goat now.
