14 Nov Chilly Water Brewing Co. Announces November 25th Specialty Bottle Release
Chilly Water Brewing Co. has announced a new specialty bottle release. On Friday, November 25th, they will host the next release in their series of “Turn It Up” beers called Long Black Veil.
To celebrate their 100th batch they concocted a brew that pushes the limits of yeast fermentation. A lengthy mash was conducted using Scottish base malts with loads of dark caramel and biscuit. The first 20% of the wort was scorched prior to boiling to mimic the old world Scottish ales that were brewed on wood fired kettles. This created caramelized sugars and flavor compounds that add to the full mouthfeel of this Strong Scotch Ale. Boiling the wort for over 3 hours condensed the sugars even further creating a rich syrup-like liquid that took weeks to fully ferment.
Long, cold conditioning and a 3 month slumber in freshly dumped Whiskey Barrels from their great neighbors at Hotel Tango Whiskey allowed this beer to mellow out and develop a rich and complex flavor profile. A nutty caramel flavor is complimented by slight vanilla and smokey undertones with a very subtle whiskey aroma.
This ale can be enjoyed upon purchase or can develop for over a decade in the bottle.
Chilly Water will open at 11am on the 25th and the bottles are $20 each with a limit of 2 per customer.
