Heavy Seas Beer Siren Noire 4-Packs

Balitmore, Maryland's Heavy Seas Beer has announced that Siren Noire will be the next installment in its popular "Uncharted Waters" series.

This bourbon barrel-aged Imperial Chocolate Stout clocks in at 9.5 percent ABV and is aged for five weeks in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans added.

Though the "Uncharted Waters" series was previously only available in 22-oz. bomber bottles, Heavy Seas has confirmed that in 2018 all releases in the series, starting with Siren Noire, will be released in four-packs of 12-oz. bottles.

Here is the full release from Heavy Seas:

BALTIMORE, MD – The “Uncharted Waters” Series by Heavy Seas Beer will soon welcome the 2018 edition of Siren Noire, an Imperial Chocolate Stout aged in bourbon barrels. This limited release will be available in January in all states where Heavy Seas beer is distributed. For 2018, all "Uncharted Waters" Series beers will now be available in 4 packs of 12oz bottles, no longer 22oz.

Siren Noire is a velvety, rich chocolate stout. Almost three pounds of Belgian coco nibs are used per barrel. It’s aged for five weeks in bourbon barrels with vanilla beans added. A mix of dark malts gives Siren Noire a well-rounded body that is decidedly chocolatey—but without being extraordinarily sweet or cloying. Brewers Gold hops contribute an earthy spiciness, with notes of blackcurrant.
