Great duos always stand out. Batman and Robin, Gehrig and Ruth, Sweet Jesus and Left Field Brewery. Collaborating with these guys didn’t just make perfect sense;, it was also downright fun.
Sweet Jesus–an espresso and dessert cafe–takes treats you enjoyed as a kid and twists them into towering, over-the-top concoctions. Their decadent cones are layered with thoughtfulness and take you right back to childhood. Needless to say, we were inspired to replicate these qualities in a beer. The result? Sweet Jesus Mocha Marshmallow Stout.
Our goal was to take outrageous, unconventional and nostalgic flavours and layer them into a beer that’s nuanced, balanced and satisfying. In other words, the ultimate dessert beer.
To create this tasty mocha-inspired treat, we developed a sweet stout recipe and added roasted, crushed cocoa nibs and a blend of Brazilian Sweet Jesus coffee beans during conditioning. The result is a rich and decadent blend of chocolate, caramel and sweet orange. To replicate marshmallow flavour we added lactose – an unfermentable sugar that gives the beer a sweet creaminess, reminiscent of our fondest childhood campfire memories.
We had such a blast creating this recipe with our good friends from Sweet Jesus and can’t wait for you to try it. Sweet Jesus launches on draught at the brewery, all La Carnita locations, Home of the Brave and great craft beer bars and restaurants around Toronto today (January 29). Bottles are available exclusively from our bottle shop starting today.
