We have a new beer to add the saga of our Franklin Expedition inspired stouts. Our latest creation was named for the Newfoundlander dog, Neptune, who was brought along on the ill-fated journey.
This strong stout was aged in the same bourbon barrels as our Terror 2020 for five months. To change it up we tried something new, by conditioning the beer on 50 lbs of toasted organic coconut and 11 lbs of Arriba Criollo organic cocoa nibs. It was a labour of love as the entire process took 6 hours of painstakingly toasting every single flake and nib in the oven and on the stove. It will be damned tasty though.
The joys of toasting flaked coconut for 6 hours straight.
This new stout comes in at a nice 7.5% ABV, and remains full-flavoured and full-bodied, with just the right hit of coconut, chocolate and oaky-bourbon goodness.
It will be available in single cans at the brewery starting this Friday. It will be available for online orders via our website starting tonight at 7 pm.
We bagged the coconut and cocoa nibs (4 bags full) and put them our brite tank, where the barrel-aged stout was then transferred.
