Stone Brewing Co from San Diego and NOLA Brewing out of New Orleans recently worked together on a collaborative beer, which they named Pour Me Somethin Mistah. It is an imperial porter made with Steen’s molasses and satsuma peel. It weighs in at 8% ABV and has between 75-80 IBU.
I got a chance to try it out Wednesday night at The Cove in Baton Rouge. It was poured cold, so I let it warm up for about 15 minutes, since I got word that it really helped bring out the flavors in the beer. It definitely has that Stone profile, very hoppy, but it doesn’t sit on your palate overly long. The satsuma peel flavor is very understated, but you can taste the molasses in the finish. It definitely is better once it warms up a bit.
I’d give it a 3 1/2 bottle caps out of 5. Glad I got a chance to try it. I was also fortunate enough to be able to bring a growler of it with me to enjoy at home. I’m hopeful that NOLA and Stone will continue their collaboration each Mardi Gras season.
