When Birds Fly South released their Empress Rising: Mole Imperial Stout, one of our cicerone-trained writers freaked out a little!

To help you understand his excitement, here’s a quote from the last Empress Rising variant he checked-in:

“I’ll dream about this beer later! It’s so rich, it’s like sipping on drinking chocolate.”

The brewers added coffee, cinnamon, chipotle, guajillo, vanilla, and chocolate to today’s Mole edition to bring bold notes of Mexican coffee to this fudgy, dark brew. The crave-worthy flavors completely disguise its massive 14.5% ABV.

There are less than 50 cases available of this specially spiced Stout. And, we’re going to torture our Pastry Stout connoisseur a little bit and give you access to it even before he gets a taste!
