Sugarloaf Imperial Chocolate Stout

A tribute to the Brazil's scandalous cacao exports and the first of seven 'Wonders of the Beer World', Sugarloaf Stout is a Chocolate Imperial Stout that illuminates the dark past of the cacao market. As Scandal Brewing's inaugural single serving bottle, this limited release features hand-painted designs and a re-sealable swing-top bottle for enjoyment over a number of sessions. Coming in at 8.5% ABV, the stout's bold flavour encourages drinkers to slow down and enjoy one tasty brew.

Brazil's cultivation of the caffeinated plant has steadily declined over the past two decades as a deadly tree fungus continues to invade their cacao fields. Sugarloaf, an homage to the country's once plentiful cacao production, is brewed using three organic malts, hops, yeast, and pure spring water. Enjoy every sip because just like Brazilian cacao, this brew won't last forever.

Tasting Notes

Brewed with a combination of BC grown two-row barley malt and aromatic specialty malts that are slowly roasted until caramelized. The result is a smooth and potent beer with distinct dark chocolate notes that finish on a hint of fresh roasted coffee. Perfect for a relaxing afternoon on the patio or warming up by the fire, this ebony tinted brew will bring a glow to any evening and complement a hearty stew as delightfully as a chocolate cheesecake.
