Alcohol by volume (ABV): 12.80%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
The first Stasis Project of 2019 is one of our most ambitious projects yet!

However Improbable is a small-batch collaboration with our friends at Moksa Brewing Company. This 12.8% stout was brewed back in the Autumn of 2017 where, after fermentation, the whole brew was recirculated on coconut pieces before it was racked into freshly spent Darkstar November barrels.

We left things to round out for a few months before racking the aged liquid out of the DSN barrels and then re-racking into fresh, first-use bourbon barrels with a full pound of fruity, floral Tahitian vanilla beans in each barrel.

Late last week we pulled the beer out of its second barrel slumber, then started recirculating the brew through a hopback chock-full of fresh coconut. Four days later, we dumped the fresh coconut swapped in a full load of toasted coconut, ...you know, for science. We ran the beer through for another four days and now hold in our hands the culmination of a series of double-barreling and triple-adjuncting experiments gone magnificently right.

Simply outstanding! Smelled the coconut when bottle was opened across the table. Nose is full on rich toasted & fresh coconut, hint of vanilla & barrel notes. Taste like a liquid coconut candy bar. Great mouthfeel. Another great BL BA stout.

hype-influenced? maybe. chocolate first, followed by coconut. this is VERY good! this is excellent. this is amazing.... this is a Mounds bar, as i have heard others say about another brew... first batch Space Trace had the chunks of coconut which were the secret to its amazing superiority and nothing after came close. THIS is amazing and different, but as successfully created... Dear Bottle Logic, please brew this one again and do NOT try to improve on it.... before submitting this review i changed my scores to give 5s across the board

Nothin short of excellent, creamy coconuts that seem to come in waves. Vanilla dominates the mouthfeel, goes down way too easy. Don't sleep on this, might be one of the very best beers ever produced from Bottle Logic. Pastry done right, maybe lacking some barrel presence with the amount of sweet coconut and vanilla but it's hardly a complaint right now.

On tap at BL. I'm hearing the tap is producing a lot more coconut so I cant compare with the bottles. Overall one of the best BL beers I've ever had. Really I haven't had a BA stout this good since FOb3. PCC, dark star, nothing comes close. Slight astringency but a great mouthfeel. Really little to complain about this is everything I'd want in a BA coconut stout.
