Stone Depth-Charged Double Bastard, with Espresso

Stone Depth Charged Double Bastard

Stone Depth-Charged Double Bastard. A version of the American strong ale, with espresso beans.

Pretty straight forward right? In true arrogant fashion, the bastard calls out your Starbucks laptop habits.

So, your knowledge of caffe is such that you have correctly determined that the term “depth-charged” refers tot he addition of espresso-roasted coffee beans. Well, bully for you For all I know, you picked that up hanging out at some coffee megachain amid a microcosmic mishmash of vapid layabouts, metro—hipsters, and laptop—sporting exhibitionists trying to convince the world (and themselves) that they’re click—clacking out the great American—novel—cum—screenplay for a future summer blockbuster. I could surely teach you a they or two were I inclined…which For I’m NOT. Perhaps you’re eyeing my backside because you’re really into coffee. Nothing wrong there, but if you’ve come to me expecting some beery incarnation of your security blanket “me time” soyfrappelatti or similarly deity concoction, you’re in for some granite—sized disappointment. I do not exist to provide merely a comforting mode of conveyance for your jittery, caffeiuted futasies. Nothing about me is smooth, subtle or hat for comfort Those who should he holding this bottle (el route to opening and indulging in what awaits within) are really into NE. Get your cionanmenrochaccino fix elsewhere. This hue’s strictly for adult mm and women who don’t require the culinary crutch of added fat and sweeteners. My motto. Bold and brave or lot at all.

Stone Depth-Charged Double Bastard will be a 22 ounce bottle offering. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: American Strong Ale (w/ Espresso Coffee)
Availability: 22oz Bottles, Draft.
Release: TBA

It’s Nitro Time for Samuel Adams & Nitro Coffee Stout

Samuel Adams Nitro Coffee Stout

Samuel Adams Nitro Coffee Stout signals the beginning of nitrogen infused cans by the Boston, Massachusetts brewery.

Seems almost redundant to mention it, but years, Guinness Nitro cans was the only player in the beer market. In recent years, Left Hand Brewing added Nitro Milk Stout bottles, while was Sam Adams launching cans. Now, Samuel Adams Nitro Coffee Stout cans are on the horizon.

The cans will use a nitro widget, similar to what Guinness uses.

A nitro widget inside this case gives our coffee stout its incredibly smooth, creamy taste. You’ll notice a swirling cascade of energy as the beer settles into your glass. The widget does the work for you, so chill, pour, & enjoy.

Samuel Adams Nitro Coffee Stout will be available in 15.2 ounce cans. The brewery has not yet announced this offering.

Style: Stout (w/ Coffee. Nitrogen Pour.)
Availability: 15.2oz Cans
Release: TBA

5.8% ABV
