Trillium x Garage Project - South Pacific Souffle
Our second collaboration with our good friends from Garage Project, South Pacific Soufflé is a full flavored imperial stout brewed with a number of dark roasted malts and dark brown sugar. To condition this special beer, we utilized Flight Coffee, Goodnow Farms cacao nibs, and luxurious Tongan vanilla beans. Rated alongside Madagascar bourbon vanilla beans as one of the best varieties in the world, Tongan vanilla beans offer a truly unique and bold flavor profile with a South Pacific flare. Nearly a foot long, our Fort Point brewing team hand scraped pound after pound of these vanilla beans to fully extract their rich aroma and flavor.
The end result pours an opaque jet black color with a khaki brown head. Swirling the glass, the nose is instantly welcomed by lush aromas of sweet vanilla cream, earthy dark chocolate, and rum-raisins. With each sip, layers of vanilla gelato, charred marshmallow, chewy dried fruits and mocha lattés wash over the palate balancing the sweeter tones with a gentle roast character. Medium bodied with a creamy smooth carbonation and viscous mouthfeel, South Pacific Soufflé has a long, satisfying finish that makes each returning sip a joyful exploration.
