Atlanta, GA — Atlanta brewery Second Self Beer Company announces its seasonal release Olde Oyl (11% ABV, 65 IBU), a Russian Imperial Coffee Oatmeal Stout. Arriving just in time for the holidays, Olde Oyl is the strongest beer in Second Self’s line-up. It’s brewed with roasted malts and oats for a rich body, robust aroma, and smooth coffee finish.
Beloved Atlanta roaster Octane Coffee has brewed a special variation of their “Gravy Espresso” for Second Self’s Olde Oyl, featuring beans from Brazil, Colombia, and Ethiopia. The espresso’s flavor notes are devil’s food, dark chocolate, sweet almond and hazelnut, cherry, orange, and lemon.
Suggested pairings for the beer include prime rib, roasted mushrooms, French onion soup, very sharp cheddar and chocolate mousse.
Olde Oyl is currently available on draft at Second Self’s taproom in Atlanta (1317 Logan Circle NW), and will be in bars and restaurants throughout Georgia starting this week.
