A Note on This Beer
If anyone knows about warming up when the temperatures drop down to freezing, it’s the hardy Chicago locals that flock to Temperance Beer Company.
So, we took a page from this GABF award-winning brewery’s book and loaded up on a sipper that’ll heat you up from tongue to toes: today’s Mexican hot chocolate-inspired 2019 Might Meets Right La Sorpresa Barrel-Aged Stout.
Aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon Barrels with vanilla beans, cacao nibs, cinnamon, and over 15 pounds of dried chili peppers in each batch, this Imperial Stout swims with layers of rich chocolate and warm spices to ignite your palate in the most irresistible way.
This masterful balance of sweet and spicy flavors has certainly melted the hearts of Chicago's craft fans, with early tasters writing “Oh sweet nectar of the beer gods. Love this.” And, “Just a joy to drink!”
Enticing aromas of dark chocolate and cinnamon sugar float to the nose from the black-as-night pour. Subtle heat from the peppers electrifies the first sip before sweet cocoa and creamy vanilla extinguish the flame. Hints of smoky char from barrel-aging linger on the finish, making every sip of this 12.3% ABV Imperial Stout smooth and memorable.
But unless you brave the cold weather for a trip to the Great Lakes, the only way to get a taste of La Sorpresa’s tantalizing heat is right here. So put on your favorite slippers, snuggle up by your fireplace, and stay warm by claiming your cans now.
Early drinkers rate this new release 4.43 on Untappd; last year’s variant rated 4.36
