Oskar Blues Brewery announces the debut of Death By Flapjacks English Porter (6.5% ABV), the second entry of 2021 in their series of over-the-top Death By beers inspired by cult classic Death By Coconut Irish Porter. Death By Flapjacks is now available nationwide in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft.
A flapjack-inspired brew might sound flipping crazy, but a big-time breakfast beer with decadent flavors of maple and vanilla was a natural fit for the Death By Series. Picking up where Death By Coconut, Death By King Cake and Death By Affogato left off, Death By Flapjacks takes its cue from the universal breakfast food – pancakes.
A gulp of Death By Flapjacks hits you with a huge maple wake up call, jacked up on syrupy goodness. Smooth vanilla, lactose, and a subtle hint of nutmeg complement the honey and crystal malts in this English Porter to provide the pancake-like vehicle for the massive maple flavors. The addition of fresh lemon peel gives a quick palate reset so you can take another crack at this short stack pancake brew.
“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,” said 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.”
Death By Flapjacks English Porter is the second offering in the Death By Porter Series. Find it on shelves nationwide in 4-packs of 12 oz. cans and on draft starting June 20. Oskar Blues taprooms in Colorado and North Carolina will be holding release events on June 20 with breakfast foods and more. Bring your Dad. Superfans of the eponymous Death By Coconut can expect the return of the cult classic this fall. Please direct questions to Aaron Baker at firstname.lastname@example.org.
