We added over 100 pounds each of locally sourced Zante currants and Black Mission figs to our Belgian-style Dubbel. This is aged in used Bourbon barrels for 12 months. During this time the warmth of the Bourbon emerges from the wood along with toasted oak and vanilla flavors. A triad of the base Dubbel, the barrel aged and fruit macerated beers are artfully blended. Whole vanilla beans compliment the wood and bring forth a velvety smoothness and richness. The fig flavor is forward on the nose along with the bubble-gum/banana ester derived during fermentation. The taste starts with the rich sweetness of fruit, carries through with a rich mellow center and finishes dry, allowing for another glass as you sit by the cozy fire.

Black DiamondConcord, CA

ABV: 7.9 Malts: 2 Row, Munich 10, Crystal 77, Special B, Crystal 30, Pearled Roast Barley Hops: Bittered with Apollo, Flavored with Chinook and an experimental variety "342", finished with Chinnok, "342", and Zythos Dry Hop: Chinook, "342", El Dorado, Centennial, Zythos, Summit Other Ingredients: brown sugar, turbinado (raw, unrefined) sugar Our newest offering Fracas Imperial Red is a deep crimson, bordering on brick red. The nose is big grapefruit, with subtle hints of pine, watermelon and honeydew. The hops are just bitter enough to stand up to the sweet malt and caramelized sugar flavor of the malts. The roast barley gives it depth of color without being overly astrigent or burnt/acrid. The hops in the finish are ever present and the flavor mimics the nose of the beer. Fracas has a slighlty chewy mouthfeel and finishes with a nice caramel sweetness yet without flabbiness in the body.

When we first got our noses in and hands on the experimental hop, then known only as HBC 369 CV, we knew it was something special. We wanted to make a lower alcohol IPA that didn’t drink like many others we tried. There was good hoppiness to most of them, but the body seemed lacking. We went to work on solving this, and it took a bit of time. When we were finally convinced our session IPA was ready for prime time, HBC 369 had been named: Mosaic. We employ this chameleon cone -with its exceptional palette of flavors- at each stage in the hopping process. Paul has actually created a lower alcohol session ale with the flavor and body of an American IPA. This beer has developed a following in the active lifestyle crowd, especially with cyclists, but it’s also a great beer when you just want a little more hang-time with your IPA. Dedicated to our hop-loving friend, David Moes, we brew this beer for true hop heads.

Black DiamondConcord, CA

ABV: 8.0% IBU: Low 40s Usual category in competition: Other Strong Ale Malts: Vienna, amber, light munich, aromatic, Special B, medium crystal, chocolate, flaked oats, roasted barley, brown sugar Hops: Millenium, Sterling Other: Cacao nibs, vanilla beans Yeast: House English ale yeast Chocolate, chocolate, and more chocolate. Did we mention chocolate? This is attained with the addition of the finest cacao nibs, sourced locally from the world renowned Chocolatier TCHO https:/ /www.tcho.com/ The vienna malts provide a nice base hue that the amber and light munich malts enhance. The amber malt has a subtle roast flavor that is counterpointed by the maltiness of the light munich. The crystal malts provide sweetness and the flaked oats are for texture in the mouth. Brown sugar provides a rumm-like, molasses flavor. Oh, and vanilla..... we source only whole beans from around the globe: Tahiti, Madagascar, Mexico, South America and the West Indies. Aside from saffron, vanilla is the most expensive spice in the world. We source the finest whole pods we can obtain- never extract - and blend them to complement the cacao and malt flavors. This beer is a natural with many dessert courses; its lush decadence complements dark acidic fruits such as berry, orange, tangerine perfectly and marries nicely with anything cream based. It can also be used in various reduction sauces and for pure indulgence and simplicity -- it makes the best ice cream floats you have ever tasted.

Black DiamondConcord, CA

ABV: 9.0% IBU: upper 80s Usual category in competition: Imperial IPA Malts: Pale, light munich, medium crystal, Carapils Hops: Millenium, Nugget, Citra, Amarillo, Centennial Yeast: House English ale yeast We didn’t want this to be Jagged Edge on steroids. Thus rather than using the same hop combination, we chose more fruit forward hops to balance out the alcohol in the beer. The medium crystal malt adds a very subtle color and sweetness. Nugget and Millenium hops are used to bitter. Citra is a new variety to the market that has some similar properties to Simcoe but a more pleasant fruitiness; pineapple/mango aromas mixed in with pine and cat's pee. Centennial brings candied orange and Amarillo adds big grapefruit. The liquid in the fermenter is dry-hopped three times- each dry hop equal in weight to the dry hop of Jagged Edge. This multi-stage dry hopping is meant to layer the different hop aromas. The beer is fermented cool to suppress fusel alcohol development, and dextrose is added to allow it to attenuate out highly, leaving very little residual sugar. The idea was to avoid that syrupy "gumsmacker" effect that’s sometimes found in Imperial IPAs. Other than barrel aged beers, this is by far our most labor intensive and expensive beer to make. Rampage fans are legion and we believe they deserve nothing less than the very best we can give them.

Belgian Tripel9.0% ABV30 IBU

Black DiamondConcord, CA

A new twist on the classic Belgian tripel. This golden-hued beer is made with barley, wheat and oats. Crystal hops create a spicy and subtle citrusy hoppiness. Half of the batch is aged for five months in three types of barrels – Jack Daniels, rye whiskey, and brandy. The other half is given a heavy dose of Italian plums, and a quick dry hop of Amarillo hops. The resulting nectar has tartness from the plums, with a plum/grapefruit-like nose, and finishes with hints of honey and oak, and a faintness of whiskey.

White IPA6.3% ABV63 IBU

Black DiamondConcord, CA

A light colored, smooth drinking American IPA brewed with Simcoe, Chinook, and Citra hops. Flavors and aromas of citrus, tropical fruit, and pine are balanced by a hint of cereal sweetness from the use of twenty percent malted white wheat. Not overwhelmingly bitter, but great hop aromatics make this an IPA drinker’s IPA.

For our January release we brewed a rich, malty, amber-colored Scotch Ale, weighing in at 8.0% abv. This is another recipe from our assistant brewer, Justin Burdt, that I am very excited about. We brewed this beer with tradition in mind, using traditional English-style malts, utilizing a long boil to caramelize the wort sugars, and fermenting cold with an English yeast. We used this brew as an experiment to see what our house-yeast could do at lower temperatures, to see if we could get a cleaner fermentation. We fermented at 64 F for a long, slow fermentation that left the beer very clean and allowed the caramel malts to shine.
