Burial Skillet Donut Stout Can

Burial Skillet Donut Stout was re-released on September 29th for a limited time in 16oz cans in Asheville, North Carolina. Skillet Donut Stout is an oatmeal stout and is brewed with molasses, milk sugar, and a 50/50 blend of Big Trouble and Hologram Counter Culture Coffee.

Cold black iron. Never decaying, it is held to the fire to unearth impeccable flavor from whatever it holds. Never biased, it welcomes all ingredients. The Skillet is our most trusted and daring tool of culinary ingenuity. It is the perfect barrier-carrier fro this rich, black ale. This breakfast stout is made from a blend of nine barley malts, a healthy scoop of oats, milk and molasses sugars, and our favorite blend of freshly roasted Counter Culture Coffee beans. Welcome the day with rich cocoa, smooth caramel, dark fruits, and an abundance of diverse coffee aroma unlike no other. Drink your breakfast.

Those that have been drinking in Atlanta a little while might remember this beer. Creature Comforts Koko Buni is a milk porter, aged on toasted coconut and cocoa nibs  Condor Chocolates and coffee from 1000 Faces (both Athens, GA). This fall seasonal was wildly popular on draft last year. We fully expect fights over the first shipments of these cans when they hit.
