After a brief hiatus to make room for the release of a collaborative “Summer” IPA, 4S returns to its roots with Mother Earth 4Seasons Autumn, a Bourbon Barrel-aged Maple & Pecan Ale. At 11.5%, the big & boozy Imperial Stout highlights two popular fall-time ingredients, and is one of the best in the series, according to our Director of Brewing Operations, Chris Baker:
“This was an opportunity to have fun with maple, a flavor that has few applications outside of dessert-like beers. Notes of chocolate and coffee malts also create a rich environment that meld perfectly with sweet maple and nutty, earthy pecan. The mouthfeel is thick and luscious, and the aroma is like dessert-in-a-glass without being over-the-top. Brown sugar is added late-boil to create a distinct brûléed finish that’s just perfect for the changing of the season.”
The Four Seasons of Mother Earth is the top-tier of our beer program. Mostly barrel-aged, limited production, and exclusive distribution ensures the integrity of these unique, sought after concoctions. Occasionally collaborations with like-minded breweries are featured to provide a fun and creative outlet for our brewers that lead to special (and often impossible to recreate) handcrafted ales. This is the crème de la crème of our catalog.
