Five Threads Brewing Company in California is using our cocoa nibs in two wonderfully delicious brews this season. Reading through the descriptions below we bet it is a difficult choice for locals to make!
Coconut Pantry Porter - Chocolate Coconut Porter
"Like the original Pantry Porter, this brew is smooth, rich and roasty with dominant dark chocolate and coffee character from our blend of five different roasted malts. We've created a whole new flavor experience by adding toasted coconut and fresh roasted cocoa nibs from Equador. Pucker up 'cuz this beer's gonna give you a big fat coconut kiss!"
3rd Anniversary Edition Cherenkov - Russian Imperial Stout Bourbon Barrel Aged (One Year)
"The Cherenkov Effect is a blue glow created when radiation travels through water and is named after the Russian physicist that made the discovery. Head Thread, Tim Kazules, made this Russian Imperial Stout at the request of his former Amgen group (that used radiation in their work), "Research Imaging Sciences." This Three Year Anniversary edition of the Cherenkov Stout was aged in Heaven Hill Bourbon barrels with cocoa nibs and vanilla beans giving smooth notes of decadent chocolate and dark roast."
