From the town of Kamuela on the Big Island of Hawaii’s Big Island Brewhaus & Tako Taco Taqueria comes their “The Red Sea of Cacao” an Imperial Red Ale. This beer is a collaboration between Big Island Brewhaus and Caldera Brewing Company out of Ashland Oregon. The beer pours a reddish copper colour with an off white head. The aroma consists of sweet caramel, chocolate, fruits and sea salt. The flavour is of caramel, chocolate, molasses, malts, fruits, sea salt and pepper. There is some alcohol warmth to finish this beer off. The alcohol content comes in at a big 8.6% with an IBU of 30. This is a very weird beer in a very good way! This was a very well made beer.
Commercial Description: This beer is a collaboration with brewer Jim Milla (SP) from Caldera Brewing Company in Ashland, Oregon. An Imperial Red Ale reminiscent of a liquid chocolate-caramel-sea salt candy bar with a touch of fruity spice. Brewed with barley, hops, molasses, chocolate, pink sea salt and black peppercorns. Quite amazing really. (Transcribed from a blurry photo. I tried to go for a perfect copy)
