Holy Mountain Brewing is releasing two variants of its Midnight Still, a 12.5 percent ABV imperial stout that was first released in February.
The first variant is Cherry/Rye Midnight Still, an imperial stout aged on cherries in Rittenhouse rye oak barrels for 19 months. This blend also contains Barrel 001, which was the first Midnight Still barrel ever filled.
The second incarnation is Coffee/Vanilla Midnight Still, an imperial stout infused with Madagascar vanilla beans as well as coffee sourced from Elm Coffee Roasters in Seattle. Dubbed Nine Swans, the coffee blend is composed of both Colombia Finca El Danubio and Ethiopia Worka Yirgacheffe coffee beans.
According to a post on Holy Mountain’s website, both variants will be packaged in 500ml bottles priced at $18 each when they go on sale today at the Seattle-based brewery. There will be a three bottle limit per person for Cherry/Rye Midnight Still while Coffee/Vanilla Midnight Still will have a four bottle per person limit.
