This year our version of Bounty continues to honour an unhealthy predilection for the mutinous tradition. The base recipe is brewed out to make a more chocolate accented stout avoiding overt roast characters; a small quantity of dark chocolate was duly added towards the end of boil. Following primary fermentation, the temperature was lowered for an extended conditioning period and 8kg of roasted coconut, 6kg of macerated cherries and 500gm of Cacao were added to the fermenter to contribute to the beers maturation process…as always the intent is to seek flavour contributions from those extra elements without compromising the integrity of the beer itself….the sweeter coconut accents are moderated by the slightly bitter cacao and a fleshy edge from the cherries…..’cos after-all Captain Bligh was completely misunderstood.
