Over the next few weeks, we’ll be featuring the most talked-about part of our 2018 Darkness Day blowout in Somerset: Darkness variants. We’ve experimented with complementary flavors for our Russian imperial stout in the Beer Hall and at select beer festivals, but never before to this extent. To say we’re excited to roll these out to the Darkness Day faithful is an understatement. Last week, we covered the bourbon barrel-aged cherry vanilla variant. This week…
TODAY’S SUBJECT: Rum barrel-aged Darkness with coconut added.
FLAVORS: Toasted coconut is added after the barrel-aging process. Combined with the rum aspect of the barrel and the traditional Darkness flavor/aromatic profile (cherry, chocolate, coffee, raisin, and toffee), expect an almost candy bar-like sweetness.
AVAILABILITY: As noted, all three variants are exclusive to Darkness Day, and that variant ticket package is right here. Camp out, enjoy the show, check out the guest breweries, take part in the bottle share, and/or just bring them home and enjoy. We’re not your mom (but you should definitely party with us).
