Montana Brewer Creates Triple Layer Cake Beer
Yum! Here’s a new brew with a twist! Bozeman Brewing Company took the “Black and Tan” to new heights this week by creating the ”Triple Layer Cake,” a blend of Nitro Dry Irish Stout, Hopzone IPA, and a very rich Baltic Porter.
“The concept behind the Triple Layer Cake is the same as that of a Black and Tan; a beer with less density will float on top of a beer with greater density (or specific gravity),” says head brewer Bill Hyland. “The first few sips are just roasty, ‘chocolatey’ stout, then the IPA creeps in with a bitter blast. Finally, after half the glass is finished, the Baltic Porter blends in with the Hopzone and you experience a resurgence of malt body and flavor.”
It takes about 15 minutes to produce one of these, and only three have been made so far but none offered to the public – “but they may change due to the positive response we’ve received so far,” says Hyland. The price of this beer cocktail is $4.00.
