Time to celebrate the New Year, on New Years Day, February 6th!
Well, if you’re like me and you live by the Madagascar Calendar, then you know what I’m talking about. We plan our entire year around the release of one of our favorite beers, 4 Hands Brewing Company’s epic Madagascar.
This year’s release will be online only starting February 6th at 10 am and running while supplies last. You’ll be able to select the date for pickup, which will run between 10 a.m. and 2 p.m. from Thursday, February 11 through Valentine’s Day, February 14.
This year’s lineup includes brand new beers and returning favorites.
Madagascar is an imperial milk stout aged in bourbon barrels with top-quality Madagascar vanilla beans, this inky black, sticky beer is full-bodied with strong notes of vanilla, marshmallow, chocolate, and espresso.
Madagascar Triple Chocolate | 22oz bottle | 9.3% ABV
Madagascar Triple Chocolate is aged in bourbon barrels with top-quality Madagascar vanilla beans and three unique varieties of single-origin cacao nibs from Acul-du-Nord, Haiti, Davao, Philippines, and Mababu, Tanzania.
The result is a rich, complex chocolate bomb with layers of vanilla, and bourbon.
A collaboration with the mad geniuses at Sump Coffee who provided the brewery with a unique lot of coffee grown in the Huila region of Colombia to add deep, rich, sweet coffee notes to Madagascar. Madagascar Colombia Huila has layers of vanilla and bourbon that blend with the complex flavors contributed by the small-batch coffee.
For this variant, Madagascar was aged in bourbon barrels with premium single-origin Ceylon cinnamon sticks. Native to Sri Lanka, Ceylon has a milder, sweeter flavor than the much more widely produced Cassia cinnamon. Packaged with nitrogen, this beer has a rich, velvety mouthfeel with layers of chocolate, vanilla, and spice. Shake the can before pouring and pour hard to activate the nitrogen.
Madagascar Cobbler | 22oz bottle | 9.5% ABV
For this variant, Madagascar was aged in bourbon barrels with blackberries, raspberries, and cinnamon. The result is a bright, berry-forward beer with layers of spice vanilla, chocolate, and bourbon.
