Oskar Blues Brewery shakes up the fall craft beer lineup.
The Longmont, Co. based craft beer maker is set to release its rebellious take on the traditional Irish Porter, Death by Coconut, starting this month and while supplies last. Death by Coconut (6.4% ABV/25 IBUs) is a semi-sweet porter made from loads of dark chocolate and extra dark caramel malt. It pours a rich velvet black with a frothy head and exudes intense fresh cacao flavors swirled with popping coconut aromas.
Death by Coconut is an easy-drinking, big-flavored beer that is reminiscent of sweet treats, which is no wonder given it is brewed with Cholaca out of Boulder, Colorado. Cholaca is a form of pure liquid chocolate that contains only three ingredients: cacao, water and coconut sugar. Cholaca adds a rich and smooth chocolate touch that makes this beer liquid perfection. Using only fair-trade cacao beans sourced from select farms in Ecuador and Peru, Cholaca gives it the most authentic flavor kick.
Death by Coconut, awarded the 2014 GABF Silver Medal in the Chocolate Beer category, hits shelves nationally in 4-packs of 12-ounce CANS and will also be available in 19.2-ounce cans in the Colorado and North Carolina markets. Look for it in limited release on tap starting in October as well.
