In late 2021 we blazed through an unexpected hit of a canned sweet stout release — there were astronauts and maple syrup! There were grizzly bears and blueberries! There were DeLoreans! There was No Time to Explain!
We’ve applied that absurdly delicious finishing treatment to a mix of Fundamental Observation barrels filled throughout 2020, 2021, and 2022, then blended with a chewy, lactose-based sweet stout for a liquid that can only rightly be called: More Time to Explain!
Huge aromas of ripe blueberry and sweet maple syrup deliver waves of blueberry pancake-stuffed nostalgia. Bright blueberry opens the palate, then oaky vanilla from beans and barrel hit mid-palate, tempering the sweetness of a long, maple-rich finish. Lactose contributes a creamy mouthfeel on a velvety base that drinks like the Sunday morning of a three-day weekend.
