Hopworks to Release Barrel-aged Kronan the Bourbarian

Hopworks' Ben Love

Valentine’s Day – What says ‘love’ more than Bourbon, beer and chocolate?!

Deep like the Baltic Sea and as massive as the Swedish ship Kronan sunk in its icy waters, our Bourbon Barrel-Aged Baltic Porter emerges from the depths after being stowed away for a year in Buffalo Trace Bourbon barrels.  This beer brings to the surface a frothy tan head and rich aroma combining malt notes of chocolate, caramel and dark fruit with the essence of vanilla, smoke and oak of Bourbon.  Made with bottom fermenting lager yeast, Kronan the Barbarian is as rich and strong as an Austrian actor but with more complexity.

Ben Love at HUB19 Plato        9.2% ABV     25 IBU

And check out this mouth-watering treat from the Hopworks kitchen:

Black Forest Trifle

Playing off the dark fruit and chocolate malt of our Kronan the Bourbarian Baltic Porter we paired a Black Forest Trifle to be enjoyed with our seasonal spirit.  Decadent layers of black cherry, stout brownie and vanilla cream intertwine to make up this lovers’ dessert.
