A new release from Evil Twin Brewing and Westbrook Brewing Co. is inspired by a popular Spanish pastry.

The result is Maple Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Churros Cake Break, a 10.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, cocoa nibs, coffee, cinnamon, habanero peppers and vanilla beans before being aged in maple bourbon barrels and packaged in 22-ounce bottles. While the label does not specifically mention additional ingredients, churros traditionally includes sugar sprinkled on top and the snack is often filled with chocolate, dulce de leche or fruit.

As has been the case with past variants, the base beer is a combined recipe of one of each individual brewery’s more popular releases: Evil Twin’s Imperial Biscotti Break, an 11.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, coffee and vanilla that was first released in 2012, and Westbrook’s Mexican Cake, a 10.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, cocoa nibs, coffee, cinnamon sticks, fresh habanero peppers and vanilla beans that was first released in 2012.

Last year, the two breweries released two other variants:

  • Maple Bourbon Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break — a 10.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, cocoa nibs, coffee, cinnamon, habanero peppers and vanilla beans before being aged in maple bourbon barrels for 16 months
  • Double Barrel Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Cake Break — a 10.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, cocoa nibs, coffee, cinnamon, habanero peppers and vanilla beans before being aged in both maple bourbon barrels and Marsala wine barrels for 16 months

In addition, a different label was filed last month for another collaboration between the two breweries named Maple Bourbon Barrel-Aged Imperial Mexican Biscotti Toasted Coconut Cake Break, a 10.5 percent ABV imperial stout brewed with almonds, cocoa nibs, coffee, cinnamon, habanero peppers, toasted coconut and vanilla beans before being aged in maple bourbon barrels.

An email sent to both breweries for additional information was not immediately returned.
