This compounded cuvée twists and tangles the five heads of a double and triple mash stout base for a super-viscous, high-gravity tempest of caramel-drenched waffle cone flavors. The monstrosity was finished with a 2,000lb multi-attack of coconut, 170lbs of Columbia Patroness Coffee, and a final blow of fragrant Saigon cinnamon.

Hypermash Hydra is the most complex beer Bottle Logic has yet attempted, and it received critical acclaim in its sneak-peek pours at Week of Logic 2019. After a full year in bourbon barrels, this mythical beast is dealing 13.54% ABV damage.

This beer is lactose-free.

This beer is very inviting, both visually and on the nose. Color is as close to black as you can get without actually being black, with a decent amount of dark tan colored head. Aroma is wonderful. Rich chocolate notes combined with just the right amount of barrel, followed by hints of cinnamon and a nice amount of coconut. No one aroma overwhelms, they combine together wonderfully.

Taste is similar to the nose in its components, but their prominence differs. The coconut plays a leading role vs. a supporting one, especially on the long finish. I'm really enjoying how it doesn't overwhelm you right off the bat, but rather subtly takes charge over time. The barrels are less pronounced, but add just a little bit of bite to complement the sweetness. Similarly, the cinnamon is used in just the right amount such that it adds depth without overwhelming. The only thing I'm not getting is the coffee, but I don't even care. This beer is fantastic. One of the better stouts I've had in some time.
