Demon & the Fairy – Third Anniversary
Three Magnets Brewing Company
A Note on This Beer
You could drink 500 different beers and never find one that tastes anything like Three Magnets Brewing’s Demon & The Fairy Sour Imperial Stout!
Aged in wine and Bourbon barrels with vanilla beans and boysenberries, this 12% ABV beer offers a challenge to the most refined palates, with contrasting notes of dark chocolate, sour berries, caramel, and earthy oak. This 3rd anniversary limited release is two years in the making-- it’s so rare, we’re only able to share it due to our friendship with Three Magnets.
Striking cranberry aromatics pierce the air, punctuated by a drizzle of bourbony caramel. Earthy oak appears with the umami power of brandy-flambéed mushrooms, while wine barrels give it a jammy dark berry depth. Midway through, the sourness of tart cherries gives it juicy Merlot qualities. Bitter dutch-processed cocoa notes of the dark roasts lead into a Port-like finish.
This rich brew has flavors so deep it could be a culinary destination in its own right.
It’s so unlike any other beer, it’s difficult to appreciate from the first shocking sip. But then just one taste later, the symphony warms up and it gracefully flits about from one intense flavor to the next. Taste it and you’ll know… it could be years before you encounter another beer quite like it.
