About This Beer
Beer Backstory/About the Beer: To craft Black Ivory, they started with a rich, cocoay base. Then they let the brew slumber for 24 months in J. Mattingly 16-year bourbon barrels before infusing it with peanut butter, Madagascar vanilla beans, and Black Ivory coffee. In 2022, less than 500 lbs of these ultra-exclusive beans will be produced — it is that rare.
To create it, raw coffee cherries are fed to Asian elephants in northern Thailand. The coffee is ‘naturally refined’ by the animals, and once ‘deposited,’ the beans are ‘hand-picked by the elephant’s care-givers’ before being dried and roasted. The final product is fruitier, more nuanced, and much less bitter than traditional coffee.
Thick, rich, and coffee forward with roasty and fruity notes.
