BEER INFO

Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.50%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Our Siren Noire isn’t your father’s chocolate stout. We’ve used almost 3 pounds of Belgian coco nibs per barrel. We’ve aged it for five weeks in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans added. A mix of dark malts gives Siren Noire a well-rounded body that is decidedly chocolatey—but without being extraordinarily sweet. Brewers Gold hops contribute an earthy spiciness, with notes of black current.

Super rich creamy chocolate taste gives way to a creamy sweet coffee after note... It's really sweet. As much as I enjoy it. I can't really pull strong Bourbon barrel notes. Which in fairness, many may be purchasing for. In fact, the beer is very enjoyable, yet misleading in a way. It's more sweet than Bourbon to me by a fair amount. Otherwise, very well balanced and goes down easy at 9.5%. Worth the cheap sticker price~
