A Note on This Beer
Today’s pack of delectable brews is one of the rarest we’ve ever offered on Tavour. Seriously!
You’re looking at not one, not two, but THREE Anchorage Imperial Stouts.
For many of you Stout aficionados, it’s worth flying to Alaska just to get a sip of one of these masterpieces. But when it comes to these particular beers, even a plane ticket won’t grant you access; this three-pack isn’t even available at the taproom!
And with three decadent brews, you have one bottle to gift, one bottle to cellar, and one bottle to enjoy at your next holiday dinner. Or save them all for yourself...they’re virtually collectors items, after all!
Take a closer look:
Sent By Liars - Rated 4.54 on Untappd - 15% ABV
To craft this sumptuous Stout (that sold out in 3 minutes from the taproom), the Anchorage team fermented and aged it in Missouri Oak. Then, they finished it on 1,000 lbs of hazelnuts that were roasted in Anchorage’s own wood-fired oven. Finally, they added luscious coconut and Madagascar vanilla to create a rich, full body that drinks almost creamy.
According to the founder, the brew tastes like “chocolate covered biscotti with a sprinkle of roasted hazelnuts on top.” We think that’s pretty spot on, except we’d toss in a pinch of coconut, a drizzle of caramel, and chase it with a sip of freshly brewed espresso.
The Explorer - Rated 4.39 on Untappd - 15% ABV
There are Chocolate Stouts, Coffee Stouts, Milk Stouts, and Stouts with Chili peppers. Then there’s The Explorer, a ridiculously decadent, 15% ABV limited release that encompasses it all — and then some! It sips down stunningly smooth for its strength and brims with rich Mexican mocha flavors.
Starting with a big, roasty base of dark malts, the brewers fermented and aged The Explorer in Missouri Oak foeders to mellow out the boozy intensity and impart notes of woody spice. And the real kicker? They finished it all on quite the impressive ingredient lineup: Madagascar vanilla beans, coconut, Ancho chilies, cocoa nibs, locally-roasted coffee, and milk sugar.
Into Nothingness - 4.32 UT rating - 15% ABV
Anchorage poured their absolute best efforts (and $40K worth of bananas) into this opulent treat that brims with thick mouthfuls of chocolate chip banana bread flavors.
The dark beer masters started with a Stout fermented and aged in Missouri oak foeders. Then, they finished the brew on LITERAL tons of banana, luscious Madagascar vanilla bean, creamy raw coconut, and caramelly toasted coconut for satisfyingly chewy sips overflowing with decadent banana split and coconut anglaise-like flavors.
If you’re lucky enough to snag one of the bundles we have remaining, you’ll have just the thing to make any holiday meal or reunion with friends that much more memorable!
