Notes: Imperial Stout with Toasted Coconut, Bourbon Vanilla and Double Dipped in Cocoa Nibs

The end is often only genesis for something more. One long year ago, when freedom triumphed and the times were hellacious, we started the newest chapter of our stout program with a beer so appropriately named Realm of Absolute Nothingness. It bore a darkened ominous hole into the depths of our willingness to go the extra distance. At the time, it was story that had no plan, rules or boundaries. And its final destination was forged upon abundant tangents and ruminations. This is the resurrection, rebirth, and recompense, all in one. The amalgamation of one year of hypothesizing, stumbling and eventually acheiving. This is our 6 hour stout base, turned up to 15% ABV, and aged upon a double dipping of select French Broad Chocolate cocoa nibs.

Dark brown appearance with a slight tan head that dissipates quickly. Aroma is a prominent cocoa with a touch of vanilla and slight coconut. Taste is a very smooth prominent cocoa with a slight blend of vanilla and coconut. A little thin.

Released 10/14/20; drank 10/23/20 @ the Yarchives.

Black appearance.

A rough pour yielded a small tan head; strong tree-rung lace.

Rich cocoa, sweet vanilla & mild coconut notes in the nose.

Thick, creamy mouthfeel.

Rich cocoa & vanilla flavors up front; coconut & mild bourbon heat notes on the finish.

Robust, tasty & slightly boozy; god damn, how does Burial make all these incredible stouts!
