Heavy Seas Beers Set to Release Siren Noire & Coconut Variant

SirenNoire12ozBottle2019Heavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has officially announced that the Limited Releases of Siren Noire and Coconut Siren Noire, a highly limited, draft-only variant, will begin in November 2019.

Back to claim its place as the final release of the year in the Heavy Seas Uncharted Waters Series, Siren Noire is an Imperial Stout brewed with a mix of dark malts, Brewers Gold hops, and “almost three pounds of Belgian coco nibs per barrel,” and then aged for “five weeks in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans added.”  Weighing in at 9.5% ABV, the alluring Siren Noire “isn’t your father’s chocolate stout.”

New this year to give you a fresh perspective on the long-standing, fan-favorite that is Siren Noire, Coconut Siren Noire starts with a similar base beer but “[forgoes] the vanilla bean addition that the regular Siren Noire has and add a healthy addition of fresh coconut as well as toasted coconut.”  To take the decadence up a notch, dark chocolate is also added to basically make Coconut Siren Noire “a Mounds Bar in a glass!”

Siren Noire and Coconut Siren Noire are both scheduled to release in November 2019 and will hang around as long as supplies last.  Siren Noire will have availability in 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles while Coconut Siren Noire will only be available on draft.  You can expect to find both offerings at select craft beer-focused establishments located in limited markets within Heavy Seas’ distribution footprint.  Prost!

Heavy Seas Beer Sets Upon Uncharted Waters to Welcome Back Siren Noire

38479885265_380b78f7f8_kHeavy Seas Beer (Baltimore, Maryland) has announced that Siren Noire will return to shelves in January and bring with it a packaging change to 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles.

To create this Uncharted Waters Series offering, the brewers at Heavy Seas first approach Siren Noire by crafting a “velvety, rich chocolate stout” loaded with nearly three pounds of Belgian cocoa nibs per barrel. Once the brewing is completed, the beer is then “aged for five weeks in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans added.” This process allows the beer to mature and finish as a 9.5% ABV Imperial Stout with a “well-rounded body that is decidedly chocolatey—but without being extraordinarily sweet or cloying.”

Heavy Seas has decided to shift the packaging for all Uncharted Waters releases to 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles in 2018, and Siren Noire will be the first to experience this change.  As a result, offerings from the Uncharted Waters Series will no longer be available in 22 oz. bottles.

Siren Noire will officially release in January and hang around while supplies last.  You can expect to find this Limited Release offering in those new 4-packs of 12 oz. bottles and on draft at craft beer establishments located in Alabama, Florida, Maryland and throughout the rest of Heavy Seas Beer’s distribution area. Prost!
