Monday Night Brewing (Atlanta, Georgia) has officially announced that it will release Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout, the latest Limited Release from the brewery’s Black Tie Series, on June 7.
Arriving as the second installment in Monday Night’s newly-established Fistful of Cake sub-series of dessert-themed beers, Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange is an Imperial Milk Stout that “embodies the decadence of chocolate, but tempered with the aroma of fresh orange peels and Vietnamese cinnamon.” Although it weighs in at a substantial 9% ABV, Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout has a citrus burst that is just big enough to convince you that summer can be a Stout Season too.
“Brewing a stout to drink in the summertime can be a little tricky,” said brewmaster Peter Kiley. “With this round of Fistful of Cake, we wanted to make something that would pair well with desserts, but wouldn’t be so overly sweet that it would feel too heavy.”
Fistful of Cake – Chocolate Orange Imperial Stout will officially debut in Monday Night Brewing’s West Midtown taproom on Friday, June 7 at 4 p.m. (cans can be reserved by clicking here) and distribution is scheduled to follow shortly after the on-site release. You can expect to find this Limited Release offering available in 16 oz. cans and on draft at select craft beer-focused establishments located within Monday Night’s distribution footprint in Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee. Prost!
