Manic Pixie Dream Beer #1
Fusing art and beer, MANIC PIXIE DREAM BEER #1 is a Russian Imperial Oatmeal Stout aged for 11 months in BLiS bourbon-maple-syrup barrels. This comes in a four-pack wrapped in art by illustrator Keith P. Rein and is our first 16 oz can release. Each 16-ounce can showcases its own unique design highlighting one of the four main elements of the beer: BOURBON (to the left), MAPLE, COFFEE, and OATS.
This beer has a nose of oak, rich mahogany, and hint of coffee, fading into the sweetness of maple syrup. The first sip brings a wave of flavor, starting with aged maple syrup mixed with roasted malts and a bourbon finish. Hints of rich leather, tobacco and oak tannins add to the complexity of this beer. Like with all Manic Pixies, the result is a lingering feeling to embrace life and its infinite mysteries and adventures.
Pairings: Belgian waffles with maple syrup, roasted lamb chops, pungent cheeses, foie gras, anything quirky.
