What’s that noise?! Is it a spooky monster?! Is it some wild beast?! NOPE! “Unknown Beast” is everyone’s favorite style: German Schwarzbier! Oh, heeeeyyyyy!
We started things off with a base of Riverbend Pilsner, gently layered in some Munich, Toasted Oats, Roasted Wheat, and a few other lil’ Specialty secrets before hopping it with Hallertauer Mittelfruh throughout the boil. We implemented our traditional German Lager treatment otherwise: slow and cold fermentation, spunding for 100% natural carbonation, and a long rest in a Horizontal Lagering Tank.
It starts off with notes of roasty Cacao, sweet Hazelnut, toasted Wheat bread, and just a hint of dem beans. Got me thinkin’ ‘bout dem beans...uh, right...then this finishes with the extra clean, crisp, and dry character we strive for. Don’t let the appearance of this beast fool you, it’s easily one of our favorite Lager offerings to date, and maintains that high level of crushability you’ve come to expect from our Chippy Boi™ Lager Program.
Big ups to our Production Brewer Mike Fuller for absolutely knocking this brew out of the park.
