SINCE 4SEASONS' INCEPTION IN 2014, WE'VE BEEN PUSHING THE BOUNDARIES of the big-beer category, with new and exciting combinations coming out almost every quarter for the last 8 consecutive years (You can view the full archive here if you're curious). At the risk of outdoing ourselves once again, we're closing out ‘22 with our most ambitious version yet - A Bourbon Barrel-aged S’mores Imperial Stout brewed to mimic the iconic fireside dessert.
“Normally we’re a brewery that hangs our hat on classic styles done-well, with a primary focus on the base style, sometimes augmented by adjuncts. With Winter ’22 we took the opposite approach and really set out to capture the essence of S’more flavors to serve as the cornerstone of the recipe.”
-Chris Baker – Director of Brewing Ops, Mother Earth Brew Co.
Mother Earth describes the beer as viscous and chocolate-dominant, thanks to heavy-handed additions of Dutch process and dark chocolate. Barrel-imparted notes of vanilla and brûléed sugar lend complexity that is enhanced by a light addition of cinnamon. This trifecta is responsible for a truly authentic marshmallow flavor that completes the overall S’more impression.
4Seasons Winter ‘22 will be available beginning this Friday at Mother Earth’s Idaho tasting rooms in Boise and Nampa, and will roll out to distribution throughout the remainder of December and into January in 16oz cans and limited draft. Search near you on our Beer Finder.
