The “Uncharted Waters” series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome the 2020 edition of Blackbeard’s Breakfast, an Imperial Coffee Porter aged in bourbon barrels, available in both 4 packs of 12oz bottles and on draft. The brewery will also be introducing an extremely limited, draft only variant of the beer brewed with lactose.
Blackbeard’s Breakfast is a robust porter with a new world twist. Aged in bourbon barrels and brewed with local Chesapeake Bay Roasting Company’s Dark Sumatra coffee, this porter is flavorful and complex. Featuring unique English malts, this brew will have strong notes of caramel and a slight nut character. Paired with bourbon notes and the sumptuous Sumatran Coffee, Blackbeard’s Breakfast will please coffee and beer connoisseurs alike.
For Blackbeard’s Breakfast Tiramisu, we have played up the coffee flavor already present, and used a special chocolate-forward espresso roasted just for this beer. A generous addition of lactose gives you the luxurious mouthfeel and sweetness you’d expect from a delectable slice of tiramisu, and imported cocoa nibs and cocoa powder punch up the chocolate aroma and flavor. There’s always room for dessert.
