For the third anniversary of Bomber Brewing in Vancouver in collaboration with Coast Mountain Brewing out of whistler comes the “Double Secret Probation Doppelsticke Altbier”. The beer pours a deep copper brown with a tan head. The aroma consists of roasty malts, caramel, sweetness and a floral and grassy finish. The flavour is of mild roasted malts, caramel, toffee, nuts, chocolate, brown sugar, sweetness, earth and a mild bitterness. The alcohol content comes in at 8.6% with an IBU of 39. This is a tasty collaboration from both of these breweries and well worth checking out! I know I look forward to having more.
Commercial Description: When head brewers Blair Calibaba (Bomber) and Kevin Winter (Coast Mountain) first met, they immediately became fast friends and began plans for a collaboration brew. The result of that planning is this special version of a Düsseldorf Altbier that is higher in alcohol than the traditional German style with a much hoppier aroma due to the use of dry-hopping. ‘Doppelsticke’ means ‘double secret’ in German, hence the nod to the Delta House brothers and Dean Wormer’s infamous crackdown. In the words of John ‘Bluto’ Blutarsky, “My advice to you is to start drinking heavily.”
