BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Bottle Logic Brewing
California, United States
bottlelogic.com

Style: American Strong Ale

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.78%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
We teamed up with our fellow excavationists at Horus Aged Ales to uncover a White Chocolate Chip Macadamia Nut Cookie-inspired relic!

This American Strong Ale was brewed with macadamia nut flour, lactose, and cocoa butter before fermentation, aged in bourbon barrels, then filtered through more than one hundred pounds of macadamia nuts for their creamy, sweetly rich character. Brown sugar base notes from caramelized malt melt into the soft flavors of oak and Madagascar vanilla beans for a perfect sip of fresh-baked nostalgia.

Pours a red-hued, dark rusty brown color. The head bubbles up to a finger length of ivory foam that settle slowly. The lace is thin but even, expecting heavier cling as it warms.

Sweet molasses, caramel, and toffee come off the nose first. Quickly followed up by oak and bourbon, I also pick out very apparent milk chocolate and burnt sugar in the finish.

Big, sweet, and boozy. A complex strong ale, I’d expect nothing less from a Stasis beer. Sweet caramel and milk chocolate combat a strong oak-influenced bourbon barrel presence throughout. Those macadamia nuts are much more prevalent in the flavor, and this nutty, slightly bitter flavor perfectly compliments the trifecta of bitter/nutty, sweet, creamy caramel, and oakey, boozy bourbon. Very good, can’t wait to see how it warms.

Medium carbonation works very well with an incredibly creamy, sticky finish. A noticeable booziness is present and leaves its mark with a nice warmth. Loving the mouthfeel on this.

Second beer I had at the brewery in Anaheim and it does indeed taste like a bourbon soaked macadamia nut cookie. I did not care for the flavor at all, cloyingly sweet but it did taste as advertised. These pastrybeers suck.
