It was October 2018. There was a chill in the air you could feel in your bones. The brewers’ newest concoction smelled of cherries, vanilla, and bittersweet chocolate. They knew it was good, but this stout was…SCARY GOOD!
Scary Garcia is a seasonal fan favorite, and it’s baaack. For this pastry stout, the brewers used pastry-beer hybrid ingredients to keep it tasting more beer-flavored, rather than using whole pastry product additions like cake or donuts. Lactose sweetens the finish while balancing the bitterness from the roast malts and cacao.
A nod to the beloved Ben & Jerry’s ice cream both in name and recipe, this beer is dark and the mouthfeel is creamy and smooth.
(Note: if you fear allergens, look out! Scary Garcia contains cherries, lactose, cacao and vanilla extracts.)
Scary Garcia is available on tap and in growlers at all Sebago Brewing locations.
