We're excited to introduce Jester King Nocturne Serenade -- Imperial Stout Refermented with Blackberries!
Nocturne Serenade is our second Imperial Stout refermented with fruit following Black Atrial earlier this year. We brewed a high gravity wort with Maris Otter, double roasted crystal, chocolate malt, oats, and wheat, then fermented in stainless steel with English ale yeast. We then refermented Marion blackberries with the beer at a rate of around 3 pounds per gallon! The result is a highly decadent fruit stout bursting with blackberry and dark chocolate flavors. 7.0% abv.
Nocturne Serenade will be released today (Wed. 12/16) at Jester King when we open at 3pm CST. Please note! Nocturne Serenade will be available by the glass and in 32oz. crowlers. The naturally conditioned bottles of beer got a little too lively, so we're pouring them onsite by the glass.
Please make a reservation to visit our beautiful brewery, kitchen, and farm in the beautiful Hill Country on the outskirts of Austin! https://www.exploretock.com/jesterkingbrewery. We accept a limited number of walk-ups each day we're open as well.
