That’s how craft beer maker, Upland Brewing Co., feels about their Belgian style quadrupel, Stoaked. Aged on fresh oak this dark strong beer has aromas of ripe fruit and subtle vanilla notes to tempt you. It’s lusciously rich, dangerously drinkable, and you’ll want to give in to its lure.
Upland announced that it will release Stoaked in February in 4 packs and on draught. It will be available on tap at Upland retail locations starting February 5th.
Stoaked is a luscious Belgian style quadrupel that pours a deep amber hue with shades of copper and ruby. Alluring aromas of ripe fig, cherry and subtle spice and caramel pull you in. Maturing for months on oak, Stoaked reveals a profound vanilla character and malty sweetness, supported by a creamy mouthfeel. With a clean finish and a lingering sweetness, this beer is dangerously drinkable for a beverage of its strength.
About the Brewery: Located in Bloomington, Indiana, Upland’s rich history dates all the way back to 1998. Taking traditional recipes and making them a bit more awesome, Upland Brewing Co. came up with their own recipes rooted with inspiration from good beer and good friends, providing a fresh local option to their communities. The name Upland comes from the term geologists gave to this area of Southern Indiana land which was never overrun by the glaciers that flattened much of Indiana’s landscape. The adversity of the land bred independent thinkers who had strong wills, a connection to the land, and a wry sense of humor about life. Upland’s approach to brewing beer honors the spirit of these people and this place.
