If you don’t what the proper word for “chug” is in Klingon, you may soon find out! CBS Consumer Products, in partnership with The Federation of Beer, just announced the creation of an officially licensed Star Trek Beer: The Klingon Warnog. The brew, a hand-crafted Roggen Dunkel, is slated to appear on the market in the US and Canada later this year and will be first introduced at the Nightclub & Bar Show in Las Vegas on March 25th, 2014.
Klingon Warnog, Dunkelweizen with Rye: 5.5% ABV, 19 IBU
Klingon Warnog is an official Star Trek beer brewed under license by Tin Man Brewing Company of Evansville, Indiana. This singular beer incorporates rye malt into a modern Dunkelweizen grain bill, creating a flavor profile that is both familiar and unique. Warnog’s aroma is predominantly mild banana and clove produced by the German wheat yeast, supported by subtle sweet malt character from the use of Munich malt. The flavor draws heavily from the blending of the rye malt and traditional clove character, creating a very rich and unique flavor. The inclusion of wheat and caramel malts help to round out the mouthfeel of this beer, making this Dunkelweizen hearty enough to be called a Klingon Warnog.
