Stone Stochasticity Addition: Master of Disguise

Stone Stochasity Master of Disguise

Stone Brewing Co’s (Escondido, CA) Stochasticity Project is a select line of beers meant to focus on creation, and less on the brewery.  Each release in the lineup is unique brewing experiment, a meld of styles, or new approaches to tried and true styles. Coming soon to the Stochasticity Series lineup – Master of Disguise Imperial Golden Stout.

What? Golden stout? Master of Disguise is a golden-brewed imperial stout, with coffee and cocoa. Confusing or inventive? That’s your call.

Things aren’t always what they seem, but not all deception is devious. Some illusions and misnomers lead to life’s most delightful surprises. Case in point—this beer, the yang to the yin that is the black India pale ale. Once revolutionary for its onyx appearance, it is now an accepted and beloved member of the India pale ale family tree. Thus we took the spirit of a dark beer—the time-honored stout—and applied a similar science of thought, brewing it to be golden-hued. That is what this experimental series and its latest creation are all about. Cocoa and coffee beans impart roastiness sans darkening to this brew, while flaked oats provide an enveloping mouthfeel. The result is a stout that looks more like a blonde, but is a raven beauty at heart.

Stone Stochasticity Master of Disguise will be available in 22oz bombers.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Cocoa, Coffee)
Availability: 22oz Bombers
Arrival: TBA

8.8% ABV

Note: This is a “sneak peek.” Details, release date, or release at all, are subject to change at anytime by the brewery.

This Year, Lonerider Pistols at Dawn Cans

Lonerider Pistols at Dawn Cans

So this year, Lonerider Brewing Company (Raleigh, NC) got rid of their bottling line, and went all cans. A bold move.

That means even some of the bottle favorites will return in can form, like Pistols at Dawn. Pistols is the brewery’s stout brewed with chocolate and coffee.

High noon will have to take a backseat as the fresh morning air is perfect for a duel. We present our stout brewed with roasted malts, oats, lactose, and locally produced chocolate and coffee. A rich, dark velvety beer with a fine oatmeal flavor.

Lonerider’s website still states this is 22oz release, but if you look closely, this new artwork is for cans. Look for it later this year.

Style: Stout (w/ Chocolate, Coffee)
Availability: 16oz Cans, Draft. Limited release
Return: Late Fall, 2014

7.5% ABV

Terrapin Moo-HooChiato

Terrapin Beer Company’s (Athens, GA) fourth offering in their Reserve Series will be Moo-HooChiato, a chocolate espresso milk stout.

For this release, brewery co-founder Spike took a new approach on the brewery’s chocolate milk stout, Moo-Hoo. Moo-Hoo features cocoa nibs from Olive and Sinclair in Nashville, Tennessee. The nibs, along with the addition of Jittery Joe’s Coffee (the same found in W-n-B) will surely make Terrapin fans drool.

Like your favorite cup of Cafe Mocha, Moo-HooChiato “Chocolate Espresso Milk Stout” put you in the right state of mind. take in the aroma of expertly roasted espresso from Jittery Joe’s and let your taste buds melt into the flavor of Olive & Sinclair’s award winning chocolate. Brewed with lactose sugar for a creamy mouth feel and a touch of sweetness, this is a Barista’s wish come true. 

In the Beer Street Journal video below, you’ll see Spike talk about recent release Imperial Pumpkin Porter, plus hint at the next couple of Special Reserve Series releases.

Style: Milk Stout (w/ Coffee, Chocolate)
Availability: 22oz Bombers, Draft. Limited Release.
Arrival: TBA

6.1% ABV

Cult Classic Avery “Tweak” To Be Bottled

Avery Tweak

Avery Brewing’s Tweak, you might know by another name -Meph Addict. The name (referencing Mephistopheles) was changed because it sounded a little too close to a recreational drug you hopefully have never used. (Read the label description.)

Tweak is Avery Mephistopheles Imperial Stout, with a chunk of coffee thrown in. If you haven’t geeked out enough, the brewery aged in four months in bourbon barrels.

Our very own Parker, of the cartoon cat loving variety, created this cult classic character back in our 17th season. Appearing in several episodes under another stage name that was deemed inappropriate, our executive producers and editors decided that a name change and further character development – a 4-month hiatus in bourbon barrels – were necessary to satisfy our more ardent and demanding viewers.

Batch No. 1 of Avery Tweak will be available in 12oz bottles. Potential November, 2014 release.

Style: Imperial Stout (w/ Coffee. Barrel Aged. Bourbon)
Availability: 12oz bottles
Arrival: ETA November

15.5% ABV
