pompton lakes: Boulevard Smoke Stack Series Special Limited Release Tasting is happening at Amazing Grapes
John from Amazing Grapes said on March 4 2016 from 06:00 pm to 11:00 pm
Friday Night we will be featuring Boulevard Smokestack Series Limited Release Ales from 2015.
2015 Boulevard Imperial Stout with Coconut Added
Using the base beer for Imperial Stout as a starting point, our brewers suspended just over 2 pounds per barrel of raw and toasted coconut flakes in porous bags in one of our stainless steel fermentation vessels. Finished, cooled beer was then transferred onto the flakes and allowed to rest for 48 hours to infuse the aroma and flavor of the coconut into the base beer. The resulting beer is a marriage of huge, round, chocolate and caramel notes from Imperial Stout, with smooth layers of sweet, toasted coconut notes.
At 11% ABV and 63 IBUs, no portion of Imperial Stout X – Coconut is barrel aged.
2015 Boulevard Bourbon Barrel Quad
Based loosely on the Smokestack Series’ The Sixth Glass, this abbey-style quadrupel is separated into a number of oak bourbon barrels where it ages for varying lengths of time, some for up to three years. Cherries are added to make up for the “angel’s share” of beer lost during barrel aging. Selected barrels are then blended for optimum flavor. The resulting beer retains only very subtle cherry characteristics, with toffee and vanilla notes coming to the fore.
2015 Boulevard Imperial Stout with Aztec Chocolate Stout
Imperial Stout X – Aztec Chocolate is 11% ABV and will only be available in 750 ml bottles. Locations that normally receive our Limited Release Smokestack Series beers should expect to see Imperial Stout X – Aztec Chocolate.
Price: (3) 6oz Pours $20
