BALTIMORE — The “Uncharted Waters” Series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome the 2018 edition of Siren Noire, an Imperial Chocolate Stout aged in bourbon barrels. This limited release will be available in January in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed. For 2018, all “Uncharted Waters” Series beers will now be available in 4 packs of 12oz bottles, no longer 22oz.
Siren Noire is a velvety, rich chocolate stout. Almost three pounds of Belgian coco nibs are used per barrel. It’s aged for five weeks in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans added. A mix of dark malts gives Siren Noire a well-rounded body that is decidedly chocolatey—but without being extraordinarily sweet or cloying. Brewers Gold hops contribute an earthy spiciness, with notes of black current.
