ABOUT THIS BEER
When the legends at Evil Twin make a new Barrel Aged Pastry Stout, you know it’s going to be good. They’ve stunned craft fans with treats that brim with nearly every sweet imaginable AND unimaginable, including actual paper money!
Today, Evil Twin NYC brings us THE GREAT NORTHERN BARREL AGED SERIES 2 — a thick and sticky Stout aged for 23 months in BLiS Bourbon Maple Syrup Barrels and Sine Qua Non Red Wine barrels! A résumé like that promises flavors of sweet, raspberry syrup over warm french toast from the get-go.
But, these brewers don’t stop there. After the barrels, they conditioned the sumptuous Stout on heaps of coconut, marshmallows, vanilla, and coffee! With each silky sip, a swirl of coconut shavings and fluffy whipped cream enhances the decadent breakfast flavors. On the finish, a roasty swig of a s’mores latte balances it all out.
It’s not often enough that we get our hands on Evil Twin’s rich Pastry Stouts, because they’re so sought-after. Even today, we have less than 240 cans of The Great Northern BA Series 2 to spare!
