Fratello Cigars has announced today it is partnering with Adroit Brewery to create a new Imperial Stout Beer known as Terminal Descent.

“This is the part of me that geeks out about our space program. Terminal Descent occurs in the portion of the Entry, Descent and Landing phase of a mission in which final preparation for landing occurs,” said company founder Omar de Frias in a press release.

The concept for Terminal Descent resulted when de Frias and Adroit owner Mark Osbourne wanted to create a beer pairing with the Fratello Bianco. “Fratello Bianco is all about earthiness, cocoa, coffee notes and liquor.” said de Frias. “We felt like Bianco would be fantastic for this pairing as we brewed Terminal Descent with Chocolate Malt for sweetness and Chocolate Rye for a spicy bite without the normal astringency or bitterness associated with such a deep roast.” added Osbourne.

Fratello Cigars says Terminal Descent will be available Total Wine Stores in Virginia and Maryland as well as Adroit’s tasting room and Fratello Cigar Events in Washington DC, Maryland and Virginia.
