Oskar Blues Brewery has debuted Death By Flapjacks English Porter.
It’s the second entry of 2021 in the brewery’s series of “over-the-top” Death By beers, inspired by the fan favorite Death By Coconut Irish Porter.
Death By Flapjacks, 6.5% ABV, is available nationwide starting June 20, in 4-packs of 12-oz. cans and on draft.
Death By Flapjacks has huge maple syrup flavors, the company reports, plus vanilla, lactose and hint of nutmeg that complement the honey and crystal malts in this English Porter. The addition of fresh lemon peel gives a quick palate reset.
“Brewing a pancake beer makes it all the more socially acceptable for me to never turn down a beer with breakfast when it’s offered,” says Juice Drapeau, head brewer for Oskar Blues Brewery. “The lactose and maple combination makes Death By Flapjacks a completely unique drinking experience, great for early mornings and late nights, or when late nights become early mornings.”
Oskar Blues taprooms in Colorado and North Carolina will hold release events on June 20 with breakfast foods and more.
Fans of the Death By Coconut can expect the return of that beer this fall.
