Sierra Nevada's Ovila Quadruple


Ovila is the first Quad I've had that I can "remember."

It's definitely a boozy beer so I wouldn't recommend having a bottle right before you have to drive.  You live, you learn. 

Ovila was a gift from a boss of mine so thanks to "Wil" for sharing.  He thought it was okay and I'd have to agree.  I just don't think I'd have it again.  From what I can remember, here are some of the things that stood out to me:
  •  It was thinner in mouth-feel than I expected for a beer as dark as this.
  • The carbonation was on the low end.  
  • The flavor was of molasses, burnt caramel, raisins, prunes and dates. 
  • Dry, woody, leathery finish.
