A Note on This Beer
There has been an Accident in Hubbard’s Cave.
Several barrels of 4.29 UT rated Imperial Stout spilled over in the brew room. Waves of motor oil-thick Dark Beer are rushing through the halls of the Chicago brewery, filling every nook and cranny with aromas of roasted malts and bittersweet dark chocolate.
The brewers say that just before the incident, a tiny stash of less than 100 cases was canned and sent to Tavour — cause to celebrate even amidst the panicked commotion.
Eye-witnesses describe the scene as dark, intense, and delectable:
“Wow! 12% ABV! So good.... aaaaaand I'm tipsy!!” said local fan Michael T. who was unavailable for comment after being swept away by this big and bold brew.
“Like melted ice cream with a gooey marshmallow texture and a touch of black licorice. So smooth, almost like nitro,” described local Stout fiend Johnny Hopps, who was drawn to the spillage by aromas of roasted espresso and warm spice.
“Smooth. Sweet. Delicious,” says Hubbard’s Cave regular Sean, who appeared to be at a loss for words as he ran face first into the sea of Stout, gulping down the layers of toasted malt and chocolate ganache as he went.
Hordes of Chicago-land Stout fiends are outside the brewery, desperately waiting to carry away any remaining cans of this boozy sipper. According to one fan, “Hubbard’s is awesome, you know, they have a higher UT brewery rating than Toppling Goliath so I try to get my hands on anything new they come out with.”
And even as the last drops of silky smooth, cocoa-coated Stout puddle onto the floor, these Chicago natives have assured us there is no cause for alarm.
Based on the frenzy we saw here today, this reporter will bet that the brand-spankin' new batch of Accident in Hubbard’s Cave (2019-2) will disappear faster than you can say “waves of roasty espresso and boozy liquid fudge.”
