Dark Sky Brewing Parallax: Arizona using cask strength to update old classics

@dark_sky_brewing is another moving part in the fantastic modernization of the Arizona beer scene and this is the best beer that I have had from them. Their stouts are robust and finish clean, even too svelte for some tastes. This neg in the batterworld is a fantastic quality for their barrel aged quad. Tipping the scales at a lithe 9.5%, it remains entirely drinkable and aligns gracefully with the ester and yeasty profile of those transatlantic gems from two decades ago. The phenolic VTEC kicks in at higher temps and you get waves of dark fruit, figs, prunes, fruit leather, currant and a nice old fashioned swallow that increasingly seeks to dock in the barleywine port of call. The carb has great sustain and you can smash this with careless Belgian abandon. There isn’t exactly a huge segment of competition for barrel aged quads, so when one comes along and pulls together the classic nanner and yeast profile and reconciles it with cask aged depth, the result is awesome and noteworthy. If you enjoyed the likes of @centralwaters bb quad or @voodoobrewery ba quadfather, you are in capable Arizonan sunburned hands with this offering. #quad #4×4 #belgium #azbeer #arizonabeer #beerizona #instabeer #beerstagram #beernerd #barleywineislife #dryjanuary #smashbros
