Cacao Stout is BACKBACK TO FUN STUFF
Good things come with these cooler temperatures – the Cacao Stout is home for it’s winter session down south.
We welcome back our favourite annual collaboration brew with local chocolate makers Bahen and Co for the fifth year running (Happy five year anniversary Cacao Stout !!).
Bahen & Co is creative couple Josh and Jacqui Bahen, they make stone ground chocolate bean to bar and dedicated to making chocolate the old fashioned way, in small batches, using vintage machines and only two ingredients; cacao beans and cane sugar. The husk is the fibrous outside shell of the cacao bean that is removed after the beans have been roasted. The husk is full of rich dark chocolate flavours and aromas. After roasting, the husk of the bean has significant flavour and complexity, however it is not always used in the chocolate making process. The cacao husks are a waste product of Bahen & Co’s chocolate making process, which we happily take off their hands to create this winter brew. (reduce, reuse, recycle!).
In addition to the usual ingredients of malted barley, rainwater, hops and yeast, the cacao husks are added to the mash for our Brewer’s Series Cacao Stout. The stout contains cacao bean husks from single origin farms in Brazil, Madagascar and Papua New Guinea, all providing different flavour and aroma profiles. There is 20 kilo’s of Cacao husk’s thrown into the brew for every 1,000 litres we make.
Our Cacao Stout is black in appearance featuring aromas of bittersweet dark chocolate and roasted coffee. The pallet is rich and robust with notes of bittersweet dark chocolate, coffee and hints of dark berries. Enjoy this delicious and wintery brew.
