“Remember, remember the 5th of November, the gunpowder, treason and plot. I know of no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot.” Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) can’t think of a reason either so, back for the season, is their Gunpowder Plot Nitro Porter. Releasing on November 5th, of course, this coffee, cocoa and bourbon-infused ale comes in at 6.9%.
Here is some more information from Black Raven Brewing Company:
This annual release nitro porter celebrates the thwarting of an insidious plot attempted by Guy Fawkes & his band of anti-heroes on November 5th, 1605. Fawkes’ goal was to blow up the House of Lords with barrels of gunpowder. This year we plotted closely with Anchorhead Coffee Roasters, out of Duvall, to create a perfectly roasted coffee exclusively for this beer. We soaked a portion of those pristine beans in top shelf bourbon, and cellared the whole shebang on criminal amounts of cocoa nibs. In order to unify the flavors and give it that classic British feel we conditioned it on Nitrogen. So quench the conspiracy, light your fires and remember the 5th of November.
This is one beer you’ll remember. Head on down to Black Raven Brewing Company this Wednesday and raise a glass to Black Raven, Guy Fawkes and Gunpowder Plot Nitro Porter.
Drink responsibly and stay safe out there.
