Dark Chocolate! Imperial Stout! Collab!
Recently we teamed up with the esteemed, California-based, internationally recognized, 100% oak aged brewery Horus Aged Ales, to create a chocolate-centric beast called BOP (Bird Of Prey).
Upon a strong foundation of roasted malts and an 8 hour boil to concentrate all those fermentable sugars, we added a mammoth amount of high-quality Ghanaian cocoa nibs — at a ratio 3X that of our dry-hopping rate. The result is layers of rich, fudgy, intense flavour.
And because we wanted to honour the MO of Horus, we also transferred a portion of this beer into a combination of specially selected bourbon and rye barrels, in order to meditate for the next several months.
