Barrel Aged Ovila in Red Wine and Bourbon Barrels

Sierra Nevada Ovila Barrel Aged Dubbel...$19.99 /n 750ml
"Our Ovila Abbey ales series of beers is a collaboration with the monks of the Abbey of New Clairvaux in Vina, California.  The monks there operate a winery, so it was a fitting choice to age this Abbey Dubbel in a blend of red wine and bourbon barrels to add a new level of complexity to an already beguiling brew.  Rich malt flavors of burnt sugar and caramel blend seamlessly with bright fruit notes from the wine barrels, while the bourbon oak lends a mellow hint of vanilla.
