Having breweries work outside of their comfort zone can be both an exciting and nerve racking experience. Will it be good? Will it be bad? The proof is in the beer, and Angry Chair challenges you to take on their new venture, Condemner.
Angry Chair is taking a solid beer, and trying to improve on it on each next step. Condemner begins as a Sweet Stout and then ages in French Port barrels for 22 months. Once taken out, they add a dose of toasted macadamia nuts, toasted coconut, Madagascar vanilla beans and marzipan to the mix. These sweet and nutty flavors act as a balance to the spice and oakey flavors of the barrels.
The resulting beer is a complex mastery of patience and TLC. You will be hit with sweet, spice, chocolate, fig, and a dash of cherry in this 10.5% ABV experiment in flavor greatness.
