2018 Barrel-Aged Calavera Stout
Zipline Brewing Co
A Note on This Beer
In the magical land of Lincoln, Nebraska, Zipline Brewing is crafting a Mexican Hot Chocolate Imperial Stout that’s captured the attention of the most discerning taste buds. We’re talking about those Dessert Beer lovers who’ll go to one taproom for decadent chocolate flavors, to another for Mexican spice, and then to another for small-batch barrel-aged wonders.
Until now! Ending the need for a sampling tour is the 2018 Bourbon Barrel-Aged Calavera Imperial Stout which blends all the beloved flavors of multiple brews into one smooth-drinking pint.
By aging Calavera in Bourbon barrels with cacao nibs, vanilla, cinnamon, and 5 different chili peppers, Zipline pads the jaunty flavors of south-of-the-border spices with soft, oaken richness. The brew’s final sip is like Godiva Hot Chocolate with a splash of top-shelf Bourbon.
With 3 of the Top 10 beers in Nebraska on BeerAdvocate, Zipline has been anticipating and pleasing the taste buds of their admirers for years. Once again, the brewery delivers just what craft beer aficionados thirst for: a bowl-full-o’ balanced, barrel-aged flavor that clocks in at 12.4% ABV.
For the Goldilocks of craft Stout lovers, this is the happily-ever-after to their search for a well-balanced, spiced dessert beer.
