Holy hummingbirds – Black Xantus is here
Black Xantus is a new limited release by Nectar Ales (brewed and owned by Firestone Walker Brewing Co), Only 500 cases of 22 oz. bottles were produced of this bourbon barrel aged Imperial Stout infused with coffee
Black Xantus, comes from a rare species of hummingbird native to Mexico.
Black Xantus will definitely be an “odd bird” with chocolate, espresso, bourbon aromas and flavors and over 10% alcohol by volume, a slight departure from the session beers that Nectar has been known for. Local Paso Robles area coffee roaster, Jobella, was sourced to provide the organic, fair-trade coffee infused into this special brew.
“Holy hummingbirds, this beer is amazing,” said Brewmaster Matt “Batman” Brynildson. “We are so excited to be able to brew a beer of this caliber and with so much character,” he added.
