Karl Strauss Two Tortugas
Holiday Quadruple Ale
It was 2011 when we first released Two Tortugas Belgian Quad as our holiday ale. It was supposed to be a one-time release for the holidays, but your feedback demanded otherwise. Six batches and numerous medals later, our Belgian Quad is back in all its original glory. Two Tortugas has aromas of dark fruit and caramel, with a slight hint of bubblegum from the Belgian Abbey yeast. This beer is robust and full-bodied with rich malty flavors of toffee, plums, and dates. Drink it now or lay it down – Two Tortugas’ journey is just getting started.
Karl Strauss Two Tortugas Holiday Quadruple Ale, San Diego may not top the list for birdwatchers but it certainly tops the list for beer - drinkers. And while you're more likely to spot a Sea Turtle than a Turtle Dove, tracking down a world class beer is easy. Two Tortugas is the 2nd addition to our less than literal "Twelve Days" series of holiday ales. This Belgian inspired Quadruple Ale has a delicate union of toffee, dark fruits, and warming spices that will continue to develop with age.
