Oskar Blues Brewery Creates Some Buzz with Release of Death By Affogato

Oskar Blues Brewery (Longmont, Colorado) has officially announced that it will begin the Limited Release of Death By Affogato in late June 2020.

Arriving as the latest release in Oskar Blues Brewery’s Death By Porter Series of decadent takes on the style, Death By Affogato is crafted to emulate the “classic Italian dessert of two simple ingredients brought together to create an exorbitant amount of flavor: vanilla gelato topped with a freshly pulled shot of espresso.” Death By Affogato captures this after dinner experience by starting with a base of “a rich, dark porter brewed with chocolate malt and malted oats.” The beer is then sent to the Spinbot 5000 to be “infused with cacao nibs, hand-split Ugandan and Madagascar vanilla beans and coffee from Colorado’s own Traction Coffee Roasters.” Weighing in at 6.5% ABV, Death By Affogato comes together to be a “hedonistic beer drowning in flavors of milk and dark chocolate, espresso, vanilla and caramel.”

“We like to think of ourselves as proudly unpretentious foodies here at Oskar Blues,” said Head Brewer Juice Drapeau. “In a beer like Death By Affogato, we’ve taken inspiration directly from the culinary world. ‘Affogato’ is a fancy name, but forget about that. All you need to know is that ice cream and coffee are a legendary pair.”

Death By Affogato is rolling out now and will be hanging around for a limited time. You can expect to find this Limited Release available in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans at select craft beer-focused establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Colorado, North Carolina, Texas and throughout the rest of Oskar Blue Brewery’s nationwide distribution network. Prost!
