HALIFAX, NS – 2 Crows Brewing has decided that “dark times call for dark beers,” and are offering a new release that fits the description.
Counsel Imperial Stout (8.3% abv) is described as follows:
Brewed with a wide assortment of caramel malts, roasted barley, chocolate malt, oats and flaked barley, and boiled for 24 hours to allow for more caramelization and to really amplify the brew’s intensity. Fermented warm with Oslo yeast, a wonderfully neutral kveik yeast strain from Bootleg Biology. After fermentation, the beer was conditioned on French oak and 100lbs of toasted coconut before being lagered for 5 weeks. Finally, after canning into cute little 355ml cans, we allowed the beer to condition a further 3 months to allow all the flavours to integrate nicely. Roasty, smooth, and lush with assertive roast, lovely soft coconut, and light tannin structure, full silky body, and clean finish.
Counsel is available now in 355 ml cans at the 2 Crows retail store and online shop.
