Aged 1 year in Brinley Rum barrels.

Shipwreck Porter
Barrel Aged Porter
ABV: 10% | IBU: 26 | SRM: 42

We shipped Carton Brewing ten of our barrels used to make our Shipwreck Rum from our distillery on St. Kitts. They took that opportunity to create a beer that would take advantage of wood rather than the other way around. They looked to coax complexity out of the marriage of a barrel's soul and a brew's potential, not just to bomb a huge beer with huge flavor. The rum that lives in these barrels for four years integrates its spice to the wood so well that it ends up reminiscent of a Bananas Foster. A sturdy brown honey porter seemed the best host to receive the ghosts from Shipwreck's old home. We started with a base of deep malts looking for notes of coffee and chocolate, then enhanced them with the floral bouquet of local wildflower honey and the preservative strength of 10% ABV while keeping the body sensible. This was put in the casks to meld with the vanilla, wood, and spice notes, toned down by the oxidative effect of a year in the cellar. Drink Shipwreck Porter because a barrel should be so much more than a depth charge.

Shipwreck STORMY

Barrel Aged Porter

ABV: 10% | IBU: 26 | SRM: 26

When Carton tasked their sales team exercises like relating truffle tripels, wasabi sours and salted clam ales to a world thirsty for more IPA’s, it’s only right to take their notions seriously every now and again. Stormy is the brainchild of their lead sales guy Doug. They took some of our Ship Wreck Porter, an un-spiced imperial honey porter aged in out Shipwreck spiced rum barrels, added a couple of pounds of raw ginger, and let it spend an additional half year in barrel. Drink Stormy because Doug isn’t just a sales genius.

St Kitts Coffee

Barrel Aged Porter
ABV: 12% | IBU: 20 | SRM: 5

St Kitts Coffee is a continuation of the Regular Coffee game. Their golden imperial coffee cream ale has been finished in out Brinley Shipwreck wood and coconut. Much like Regular Coffee looks to evoke an amusing version of the acidic bitter coffee curbed by milk and sugar that starts a day in a paper cup, St Kitts Coffee addresses it in a Caribbean rendition of a mug of sweet, coconut rum touched coffee, lazily sipped in a languid breeze
