Death by Coconut (6.4% ABV/25 IBUs) is a semi-sweet porter made from loads of dark chocolate and extra dark caramel malt. It pours a rich velvet black with a frothy head and exudes intense fresh cacao flavors swirled with popping coconut aromas.
"Take a porter with crème brulee, burnt sugar, and rich caramel profile and blend it with heaps of coconut and chocolate and Death by Coconut is born," said head of brewing operations Tim Mathews. "The chocolate comes from Cholaca - a Boulder, ColoRADo-based company bringing in fair trade cacao and liquefies it. We then swirl the Cholaca around in the finished beer and drop it on top of tons of coconut to create a crazy delicious beer treat."
Cholaca is a form of pure liquid chocolate that contains only three ingredients: cacao, water and coconut sugar. Cholaca adds a rich and smooth chocolate touch that makes this beer liquid perfection. Using only fair-trade cacao beans sourced from select farms in Ecuador and Peru, Cholaca gives it the most authentic flavor kick.
Death by Coconut, awarded the 2014 GABF Silver Medal in the Chocolate Beer category, hits shelves nationally in 4-packs of 12-ounce CANS and on tap at your favorite bar beginning this month. Search our Beer Finder for locations of DBC and other great Oskar Blues brews:www.oskarblues.com/beerfinder
