Hoppin’ Frog Brewery and Lervig Aktiebryggeri, a brewery in Stavanger, Norway, have brewed the second of three European collaborations Hoppin’ Frog has planned for this year.
The new beer is Sippin’ Into Darkness: Chocolate Martini Imperial Stout, a 12 percent ABV stout with 50 IBUs. It is brewed with flaked oats, candy sugar, Aurora hops, lactose sugar, cocoa nibs, and vanilla.
It is the second beer being released in Hoppin Frog’s 2016 European Tour Collaboration Series. The series, which started in 2012, is composed of beers brewed by Fred Karm, the brewmaster at the Akron, Ohio-based brewery, and breweries across Europe.
