We’ve rebrewed our Gold Medal (CBA 2018) winning stout for the winter!
Style: Foreign Export Stout
OG: 16.5 Plato
Malts: All British-origin malts: Maris Otter, 2 kinds of Crystal malt, Chocolate malt, and Roasted Barley
Hops: Northern Brewer
Yeast: California Ale (our house strain)
Aroma: Baker’s chocolate, ground coffee, touch of dried fruit
Appearance: Jet black with ruby hues, opaque with a persistent tan head
Taste: Chocolate and roast up front, with a touch of toffee, biscuit, and dried fig. Firm hop bitterness, no discernible hop flavour, clean finish, dry
