More information about Schoppe Bräu Hangover Breakfast
(K)a hangover for breakfast.
There are people who are convinced that nothing helps better against a hangover than a beer. Konterbier is the colloquial name for the tastiest medicine against headaches and stomach aches. The Berlin brewery has found a more elegant name for it: Hangover Breakfast. Behind the quirky expression is an exceedingly delicious vanilla stout that symbolizes the hangover headache in the form of a cat's skull with crossed vanilla beans on the label. We're not one hundred percent sure if this beer can actually cure a hangover. Worst case scenario, you're left with a grumpy head, but you're enjoying an excellent beer while suffering. Good prospects!
Schoppes Hangover Breakfast is an ebony dream with punchy 12.0% alcohol content and mind-blowing aromatics. To transport the essence of vanilla in all its glory into the beer, the brewers underwent a real ordeal: an entire mountain of vanilla beans was neatly scraped out by hand. Whole or not at all, that's the motto!
The hangover breakfast sneaks into the glass on mahogany-colored velvet paws and shimmers ruby red. A stately crown of hazelnut-brown foam of the finest porosity sits enthroned on the jet-black beer and exudes a seductive aroma of luxurious vanilla, dark caramel and candied red fruits. The finish reveals this beauty's voluminous body: buoyed by a mild carbonation, notes of spicy vanilla, fresh-from-the-oven cookies, delightfully sticky toffee and ripe red fruits swarm the palate.
For this beer, one gladly accepts the hangover!
