Dark and roasty with a tan head, IN YOUR MACE! is a coffee milk stout brewed with cinnamon verum chips from the Zanzibar Islands, mace spice, milk sugars, coffee, chicory and most importantly … chili oils, the active ingredient in Mace Brand (yep, the pepper spray).
But, mace … really? Sam dreamt up this far out beer concept with high school pal Eric Crawford, Vice President of Sales at Mace Security International, Inc. Reminiscing ‘bout the good old days over a couple of beers while planning their trip to Boston for the city’s annual Extreme Beer Fest, Sam and Eric thought it would be great fun to brew an envelope-pushing beer together using adventurous culinary ingredients, like chicory, coffee and milk sugars, and two varieties of mace … the first being mace the spice, which is found in the outer hull of nutmeg shells, and the other being the mighty, all-natural pepper oils found in Mace Brand pepper spray.
Clocking in at a 5% ABV and 35 IBUs, this smoky, moderately sweet stout gives off spicy nutmeg, anise and espresso aromas with a palate-warming chili-spiced finish. Brewed with the primary ingredient in Mace Brand pepper spray – oleoresin capsicum (a food grade version of chili oils) – IN YOUR MACE! won’t burn your palate but it does have a noticeable heat.
IN YOUR MACE! was released in 750ml bottles exclusively at our Milton Tasting Room & Kitchen on Saturday, February 17, 2018, as well as poured at the 2018 Extreme Beer Fest in Boston.
