Bottle Logic Brewing’s newest addition to its most popular series was inspired by the flavors found in chocolate covered bananas.
That beer is Equivalent Dose 2019, a 13.49 percent ABV imperial stout that was fermented with cactus honey from Arizona before being aged for “nearly two years” in a combination of bourbon barrels and “ex-bourbon barrels” that previously contained Superstition Meadery mead. The stout was then blended with “an intensely potent small-batch beer built on our pilot system with mountains of real bananas” and filtered through a “bed of sweet, earthy cacao nibs” before being bottled.
Equivalent Dose 2019 is a member of Bottle Logic’s Stasis Project Series, which “celebrates the barrel as a fifth ingredient” and includes other notables such as Fundamental Theorem 2019 (20.59 percent ABV), El Duende (14 percent ABV) and Arcane Rituals 2019 (13.59 percent ABV.)
According to Bottle Logic, Equivalent Dose 2019 will be packaged in 500ml bottles ($23.95) and will have a three bottle per person purchase limit. Interested parties will have the chance to order tickets redeemable for bottles on Sept. 22 via Eventbrite with bottle pickups starting Sept. 28 and no proxies will be allowed. Finally, bottles may be available for purchase in the Tasting Room if they do not sell out during the online sale.
