About This Beer
When they first crafted an Imperial Stout-Barleywine hybrid, Fonta Flora knew they wanted to make a mildly spiced and cocoa-y version.
To make it, they blended an 18 month double barrel-aged Barleywine with an 18 month bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Stout conditioned on freshly grated nutmeg and cacao nibs. Each sip is like savoring a delectably boozy sticky toffee pudding.
A swirl of the glass leads you into Coracoid [Cocoa and Nutmeg]’s rich, malty tones of caramel, dates, and raisins. A layer of chocolatey depth shades hints of leathery tobacco and dried fig, while oaky vanilla and nutmeg bring in nuances of creamy custard.
