Introducing Kontiki Bastard
Our Bastard family is always growing. From its humble origins with Bolshevik Bastard Russian Imperial Stout, the gang has multiplied to include iterations aged in bourbon and wine barrels, spin-offs infused with Detour Coffee beans, dry stouts, even fruited stouts! There’s a Bastard for every member of your family!
And on Friday January 11, we will unveil to you our most luxurious Bastard yet:
Kontiki Bastard, a Bourbon Barrel-Aged Russian Imperial Stout with Toasted Coconut and Cacao Nibs.
Yup, it’s a real mouthful, and you haven’t even tasted it yet.
What Is Kontiki Bastard?
Our brewers took 6 of our best Kentucky Bastard barrels, and hit them with tons of coconut (toasted in-house of course) and over 10kg of organic cacao nibs!
Jet black like the Ace of Spades, the aroma is a melange of delightful bourbon with shaves of roasted coconut and cocoa, like a dive into Willy Wonka’s chocolate river. On the sip, a velvety cloak of nutty chocolate richness that will have you thinking you accidentally melted a Mounds bar in a snifter of whiskey. The perfect accompaniment for a thick slice of double fudge cake topped with honeycomb ice cream.
