Bootlegger’s Black Phoenix
From Bootlegger’s Brewery – Black Phoenix melds rich bold coffee with the smokey flavors of Chipotle peppers, giving it just a touch of heat. To insure the freshest coffee available, we had our local Orange County friends, Kean Coffee, custom roast a batch for us. Notes of chocolate complement this complex and bold stout. This special release will only be available in limited quantities so enjoy it while it lasts.
