February Beer News
Let's talk about stouts. Everyone is probably familiar with this super dark and popular style. They can range from sweet (milk stouts) to dry (most Irish stouts) with both coffee and chocolate notes. The Imperial versions are often incredibly high in alcohol.
Smuttynose Imperial Stout: Originally brewed in the early 19th century for export from Britain to the imperial court of Russia’s Catherine the Great. Imperial stouts are characterized by their dark color & full body. This style features a rich, malty sweetness coupled with aggressive hopping (especially in American interpretations). Notes of dried fruit as well as roasted malt flavors are typically present.
14th Star Brewing Company Maple Breakfast Stout: brewed with 100% pure Vermont Maple Syrup, local St. Albans honey, and coffee.
Otter Creek Brewing Couch Surfer Oatmeal Stout: Brimming with darkly roasted malts and rich notes of chocolate and coffee, this velvety-smooth oatmeal stout lingers and lounges into your heart. Gone before you know it...seriously.
Fifty Fifty Brewing Company Eclipse Barrel Aged Imperial Stout: Imperial Stouts are noted for being very rich substantial beers, and Fifty Fifty’s Totality Imperial Stout does not disappoint on this fact. Brewed in small 300 gallons batches, the brewers lovingly craft this masterpiece once a year. Made with the finest malts, hops, fresh mountain water and yeast, over 18 separate ingredients lend their unique character to this beer. To become Eclipse, Totality is then aged for a minimum of 180 days in oak bourbon barrels. This time spent adds a plethora of flavors to the already rich Imperial Stout. At first taste there is a large presence of dark chocolate, espresso and warmth from the alcohol of the beer. Oak barrel character then comes into play with hints of vanilla and coconut, followed by mild bitterness from the hops, and then a nice long lingering finish with hints of tobacco, dark dried fruit and more chocolate. Eclipse is a wonderful companion with dessert. A beer meant for contemplation best enjoyed in a snifter and with a friend.
