Say it with me, “Madagascar.” Again, “Madagascar” – yeahhhhh

The big day will be January 28 and will include, for the first time, two variants of the popular barrel aged beer.  Along with traditional Madagascar, look for Madagascar Uganda, and Madagascar Port Double Barrel.  Uganda is a coffee variant.  The Double Barrel spent nine months in Knob Creek bourbon Barrels and finished in Portuguese Port Barrels.

“There will also be Single Barrel Gift sets with a Knob Creek Single Barrel Bottle hand selected by 4 Hands along with a bottle of Madagascar that was aged in that was aged in that same Knob Creek Barrel,” said owner Kevin Lemp. “Madagascar Single Barrel Knob Creek is an extremely limited edition of our Madagascar Imperial Milk Stout. We hand-selected a single barrel of 13-year-old Knob Creek Bourbon at Jim Beam Stillhouse in Clermont, Kentucky. After bottling the Bourbon, we used the barrel to age our Madagascar. This project provided us with an incredible opportunity to showcase the unique characteristics of this single barrel.”

This is not a ticketed event. Sales begin when they open at noon and go until we sell out. The allocation will be based on attendance.

Madagascar | 22oz bottle | 9.3% ABV | $23
This Imperial Milk Stout was aged in bourbon barrels with whole vanilla beans. Madagascar pours a dark black with notes of bourbon, chocolate, and vanilla.

Madagascar Uganda | 22oz bottle | 9.3% ABV | $26 
Our friends at Goshen Coffee Company were able to provide us with a unique micro-lot of Ugandan coffee to add to our Madagascar Imperial Milk Stout. Grown on the northern slopes of Mount Elgon and processed at the Sipi Falls mill, this coffee has strong notes of strawberry, raspberry, and plum. Madagascar Uganda has layers of Vanilla and Bourbon that blend perfectly with the complex flavors of this small-batch coffee.

Madagascar Port Double Barrel | 22oz bottle | 9.5% ABV | $26
Madagascar Port Double Barrel is a new take on our Madagascar Imperial Milk Stout. After resting in Bourbon barrels, this Madagascar was transferred into freshly-dumped Portuguese Ruby Port barrels and aged with Madagascar vanilla beans. Strong notes of vanilla dominate the aroma, backed up with a complex blend of port wine, oak, Bourbon, and chocolate.
