A new barrel-aged stout coming from Turning Point Beer this weekend would be right at home on the breakfast table.
The newest release is Blackout Brunch, a 16.2 percent ABV imperial stout aged for up to 18 months in barrels that aged bourbon for 12 years then had maple syrup aged in them for eight months. In a text conversation, James Peery, co-owner of Turning Point, told Tenemu that the stout was also conditioned on cacao nibs, coffee, maple and vanilla beans.
This will be the sixth barrel-aged stout to be sold in bottles by the Bedford, Texas-based brewery:
- Release The Krausen — March
- Endgame — April
- Laser Cannon Deth Sentence — June
- Blacker Than The Blackest Black Times Infinity — July
- Do Not Adjust the Contrast — September
- Blackout Brunch — October
According to Peery, Blackout Brunch will be packaged in 500ml waxed bottles ($21) and will have have a six bottle per person purchase limit when it goes on sale exclusively at the brewery on Oct. 26.
