Heavy Seas Blackbeard's Breakfast Returns

imageFrom Heavy Seas:


BALTIMORE, MD - The “Uncharted Waters” Series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome back it’s Imperial Coffee Porter aged in bourbon barrels, Blackbeard’s Breakfast. This limited release will be available in late May - early June in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed. 

Blackbeard’s Breakfast is a robust porter with a new world twist. Aged in bourbon barrels and brewed with Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company’s Dark Sumatra coffee, this porter is flavorful and complex. Featuring unique English malts, this brew will have strong notes of caramel and a slight nut character. Paired with bourbon notes and the sumptuous Sumatran Coffee, Blackbeard’s Breakfast will please coffee and beer connoisseurs alike.

  

According to Brewmaster, Christopher Leonard, “Blackbeard’s Breakfast is probably one of the most challenging beers we've ever brewed. Its starting gravity of 23.5 Plato is higher than anything we've ever attempted at Heavy Seas. We used eight different malts, including 7 from the U.K. - Amber, Black, Chocolate, two types of Crystal, and Vienna comprise almost 40% of the grain bill. This beer possesses layers of malt flavor.  At 10% ABV, with earthy, herbaceous English hops, bourbon-barrel aging, and Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company's Dark Sumatra coffee, this beer is complex, mysterious, and one heck of a delicious brew.”
