A Note on This Beer
Other Half’s Deep Orbit Stout series has repeatedly blown our minds with its huge ABVs and big pastry flavors, but today marks the first time we’ve seen an edition brewed with candy!
You read that right — the acclaimed Brooklyn brewers wove their latest 15.5% ABV limited release full of Butterfingers and Snickers candy bars.
On top of the roasty malt base, the candy provides waves of nutty chocolate and ooey gooey nougat in every sip. It’s sweet without being cloying, an expert dance of dark dessert complexity.
And, while you’ll definitely taste the booze, it’s still shocking that it’s that far into double digits. Prepare for pleasant warmth that rises slowly between sips and wraps in in a cozy hug.
Local sipper @Rich G. declares Cygnus “One of the best brews I’ve ever had.” Where will it rank for you?
Other Half is a treat for any craft beer fan – they’re one of VinePair’s most important breweries of the past decade!
