Bourbon Barrel-Aged Hawaiian Coffee Cake Golden Stout
Distant Messenger celebrates the discovery of ʻOumuamua, the first known interstellar object detected passing through our Solar System! Formally designated 1I/2017 U1, it was discovered by Robert Weryk using the Pan-STARRS telescope at Haleakala Observatory, Hawaii, on 19 October 2017.
The name comes from Hawaiian ʻoumuamua, meaning 'scout' (from ʻou, meaning 'reach out for', and mua, meaning 'first, in advance of'), and reflects the way this object was like a scout or messenger sent from the distant past to reach out to humanity. ʻOumuamua roughly translates to 'first distant messenger'.
Our tribute brew was inspired by the flavors of Hawaiian coffee cake! We built this 13.04% ABV Golden Stout with lactose for a silky-soft texture and finished it with fresh coconut, tropical pineapple, and 300lbs of marshmallows for a pop of sweetness. It's all brought together with a final orbit through El Salvador Angel Mountain coffee beans roasted by our friends at Bodhi Leaf!
