Deep Dark Woods Blend 1 - Barrel Aged Imperial Stout with in house toasted coconut and cacao nibs.
Invoking exactly where our imperial stout and other purpose built beers lay to rest, the Deep Dark Woods series is both literally and figuratively the embodiment of our approach to spirit barrel aged beers.
A grist of both simplicity and nuance, mashed and fermented with process choices gleaned from extensive self reflection and finally ensuring that the beers have ample time to rest deeply within the charred dark wood they call home for often more than a year.
Blend 1 was conditioned on our in house processed coconut and cacao nibs after its lengthy rest in whiskey soaked charred oak barrels. We taste notes of German chocolate cake, dark chocolate covered cherries, and burnt caramel layered over a full on decadent finish. 12% ABV and on for pours and 500ml bottles to go at $20 per bottle (4 bottle limit with 850 available).
Chroma Cerise - Our Barrel Aged Sour refermented on whole Montmorency Cherries, after months of bottle conditioning, is finally ready for enjoyment. Pouring a gorgeous, if we do say so ourselves, bright red due to the extended contact time on the skin of whole fruit, this one is both form and function.
Bright fleshy cherry aromatics and flavor carry into a layered oak laden acidity, balancing out the fruit’s natural sweetness. 5% ABV and on for onsite pours and 500ml bottles to go at $14 per bottle.
Precursor Pils 5% ABV - Our keller pils makes its way back into cans. This beer was pulled from its lagering phase earlier than normal in the Kellerbier style, and offered fresh and with increased hop charge. As a result, we taste herbal lemon, and a bright earthy hay minerality lending to complete drinkability. $12 per 4-pack this Friday in Fulton.
Patterns - Our first ever can conditioned beer is ready for the end of the summer, despite knowing there’s plenty of heat left. A clean, subtle, and simple saison style beer was fermented intentionally cooler with a French Saison yeast, and then sent to cans basically still, but mixed with a measured amount of priming sugar. The flat beer was canned and then left to condition at room temp until carbonation was achieved through the natural process of refermentation, often utilized in bottles or kegs.
Cleaner phenolic notes of pear and orchard fruit tropical warm spice lead into a clean honey laden Pilsner malt character. Bone dry, but silky, this beer drinks in quantity with relative ease. 5% ABV and on for onsite pours and can conditioned at $14 per 6-pack.
