Zmrok: Kakosavy

Caribbean-style Imperial Stout

We decided to go all the way in our Zmrok imperial stout series and make it Caribbean style. First of all, we made a thick wort with a huge dose of black malt, then we soaked oak chips in spicy and aromatic rum, roasted coconut flakes till perfection, and added this pirate cocktail to secondary fermentation. Coconut brought vanilla and candy notes in the smell and created that silky oily structure, while the wood chips, hops and black malt made the beer dry and bitter – in the best traditions of the old school imperial stouts. This is a taste of paradise in your glass with some real coconut flakes. Arrr!
