November 2017, Tampa, FL – What better day to enjoy dark beer than black Friday? On Friday, November 24 at 6pm, Coppertail will celebrate its annual barrel-aged beer day with two very special new beers.
For the past 15 years, craft breweries have been invited to Chicago by the Illinois Craft Beer Guild to stand their beers up against the best of the best barrel aged beers in the country. The Festival of Barrel-Aged beers, known as FOBAB, is the world’s largest barrel-aged beer competition. Over 200 breweries competed for recognition in eleven categories, and awards were also given for best of show and best of show runner-up.
This year, Coppertail Brewing Co. won a gold medal for its new, Imperial Tropical Stout, SuperVoid, in the Strong Porter/Stout (>7% ABV) category. Supervoid was aged in bourbon barrels. It has a rich malt backbone, big chocolate notes, hints of vanillin and soft bourbon notes, with an ABV of 12%. It will be offered on tap and in 750 ml bottles on Nov. 24 in the taproom only.
Another new beer to be released that day is UnCommon Curse, an English style barley wine, aged in bourbon barrels. The tasting notes for UnCommon Curse say it has hints of sherry, dark fruits and soft bourbon in its flavor profile. ABV is 12%. It will also be offered on tap and in 750 ml bottles in the taproom only.
You don’t have to go to Chicago to sample a world class beer. SuperVoid and UnCommon Curse will be available soon, as well as other barrel aged beers that have been waiting to be enjoyed.
