Permutation is our experimental series of small batch offerings, showcasing the unique visions and innovative concepts developed by our brewing and cellar crew.
Permutation 109 draws inspiration from two of our favorite inductions in the series so far: Numbers 52 and 57. Like those batches, for this special beer we took an imperial stout aged just over two years in bourbon oak barrels and blended it with a fresh stout brewed in stainless fermenters. Next, we added coconut, almond, vanilla bean, and our Trillium blend cold brew to amplify the palate with bold depth and decadent flavor. Out the bottle, Permutation 109 pours a jet black color with a mocha brown head, presenting excitable and mouth watering aromas of toasted coconut, milk chocolate, and chewy almond shortbread with hints of bourbon. Each sip offers a chance to explore a layered palate rich with flavors of brownie batter, Almond Joys, chocolate chip oatmeal cookies, coconut granola and oaky vanilla. A rush of smooth, roasty cold brew highlights the finish balancing the sweeter elements of the palate with a gentle bitterness. Full bodied with a velvety and viscous mouthfeel, Permutation 109 is the perfect night cap for the last chilly nights of winter.
