AAO: The Wanderer - Vol. 1, Issue 5 (Chocolate) | Idle Vine Brewing Co.
Style: IPA - Black / Cascadian Dark Ale
Description: Our brewer wanted to design a beer that complimented the black and white artwork as well as the grim storyline. After a ton of thought and recipe development, The Wanderer was born. This monstrous Cascadian Dark Ale is brewed to drink with a slight roast and a hint of alcohol all while pouring like motor oil. Three traditional west coast hops are added generously throughout the boil and during conditioning. Prominent bitterness and intense floral, pine, and citrus flavors and aromas balance the colossal body and malt tones. Put shortly, this is just one mutha of a brew weighing in at 10% abv. and 99.9 IBU’s. The 15 hop additions and the IBU’s they separately impart lend a hint to a major motif in the story. For Issue 5, we brewed and aged The Wanderer with Cocoa Nibs.
