Beer Review – Oskar Blues Death by King Cake

You have to love a city with a plethora of nicknames

Crescent City
The Big Easy
The Birthplace of Jazz
And we’re sure there are others that we’ve never heard before!

Of course, the city we’re talking about is New Orleans, Louisianna and we’ve definitely got a soft spot for the town thanks to its fantastic food & drink options coupled with a supremely laid back attitude.

In honor of The Big Easy’s world-renowned Mardi Gras celebration which takes place on Tuesday, February 25, Oskar Blues has recently released a beer called Death by King Cake. Here’s what they have to say about it:

Death by Coconut, a yearly seasonal release, has developed a devoted cult following. This year, the death toll will rise with three dangerously over-the-top entries in a brand new series, starting with Death by King Cake. Inspired by the traditional Mardi Gras treat, this decadent white porter is brewed with vanilla, cinnamon, nutmeg, cacao nibs, orange peel, and pecans. Plastic baby not included. Stay tuned for more lethally delicious Death By beers to be announced throughout the year.

We’re big fans of Oskar Blues Death by Coconut, so we were super excited to try this beer. To find out if it lived up to our very high expectations, click the play button on the following video:
