A Note on This Beer
The brewers at Wild Ride in grey, rainy Oregon are looking for a boozy way to escape the last bit of this crazy winter. It’s why they crafted today’s 9% ABV Laughing Face Imperial Coconut Porter with 50 lbs of raw coconut shavings per batch.
If you live outside of the Pacific Northwest, it’s likely you haven’t heard of these dessert-brew masters -- their beers almost never leave the region. But these guys are snagging medals all over the country, including 4 Gold Medals at the North American Beer Awards. And today’s 4.04 UT-rated breezy island getaway that will surely be the hit of any bottleshare.
You’ll be whisked away as aromas of sweet coconut and decadent fudge brim from the dark-as-night pour. The roasty Porter base brings layers of roasted espresso and rich, dark chocolate, like sipping a spiked iced mocha on a warm, sandy beach. Hints of vanilla give way to wave after wave of smooth coconut, and a touch of silky caramel balances the big ABV.
If you weren’t already clued into Wild Ride’s boozy, decadent expertise, you’ll be hooked after one taste of Laughing Face. These craft masters are serving up some serious island vibes, so snag this boozy beacon and break out of the that late winter gloom!
