Chocolate Rain 2015 18.4% ABV & 2016 19.7% ABV
If you aren’t already familiar with Chocolate Rain, it’s time to get to know her, because she’s about to become your best friend. Originally created as a single cask conditioned version of our Black Tuesday imperial stout for one of our release parties several years ago, Chocolate Rain has now taken on a life of her own. The base beer is a select few bourbon barrels of our imperial stout that can range anywhere from 16-21% in alcohol. Once those barrels are chosen, we spend an entire day slicing fresh vanilla beans to add to those barrels along with cacao nibs that are sourced by San Francisco based TCHO chocolatier. After a few months soaking up those rich, dessert-like flavors, the barrels are blended to taste and the result is one of the most decadent beers that we make. Rich in chocolate, vanilla, oak and bourbon, it truly puts the ‘imperial’ in imperial stout.
Black Tuesday 2016 20.3% ABV
The economy fluctuates. The latest fads inevitably decline. Black Tuesday stands the test of time. Our bourbon barrel-aged imperial stout brings a seemingly roaring combination of flavors - vanilla, caramel, dark chocolate and singed oak, to name a few - into a decadent, sophisticated fusion that’s fit to claim its own day of the week. And it only comes around once a year.
