Origin of Darkness, a great serie from the Canadian Collective Arts and in collaboration with a few other breweries.
In this case a collaboration with the American Civil Society.
This Origin Of Darkness is an Imperial / Double Stout with the addition of cinnamon, marshmallows, cocoa powder and lactose.
As if that wasn’t enough, this beer was matured for another 9 months in Canadian Rye Whiskey barrels.
The result is a pitch-black beer with a smaller, beige head.
A real flavor bomb! The cinnamon is easily recognizable.
The barrel ripening comes through nicely, but soft. Due to its slightly creamy character, it is incredibly soft and easy to drink.
Did you know that Collective Arts have their labels designed by all kinds of artists from all over the world?
Their labels are carefully chosen by a jury and the best designs are then eventually used for their beers.
For example, the artist of the design in question is always mentioned on each label.
Perhaps what makes it even more fun is that their tins often consist of multiple designs. For example, the labels can always differ!
Note: the date on the bottom is always the date when the beer was canned!
