Sierra Nevada - Trip into the Woods Madeira Quad
First released 2016
Brewed with: Cherries, Aged in Madeira Barrels
Ale brewed with cherries aged in Madeira barrels. This very limited beer is a blend of two vintages of Sierra Nevada's Ovila Quad--one straight Belgian-style and the other with tart cherries. Additional layers of complexity are achieved through ageing in oak barrels used to mature Madeira, the fortified wine hailing from the Portuguese island of the same name. The barrel ageing results in a decadent and flavourful blend of cocoa, fig, cherry, and raisin notes with hints of wood, caramel, and burnt sugar.
