Perfect Stout

Perfect Stout Wine Details

Description: An Irish Dry stout this is rich, dry, extra-dark, almost black ale. We use English Maris Otter, Black & caramel and Belgian Chocolate malts as well as American Roasted & flaked barley. The dryness comes from the use of roasted unmalted barley and a high hop bittering rate; flaked unmalted barley also adds a creaminess. It is Hopped with German Magnum & American Santiam.

Varietal Definition
Stouts are very dark, almost black beers, and feature a heavily roasted flavor profile. This is achieved by brewing with malt that has been kilned until it resembles burnt toast. Although not always considered ales by consumers, these beers use top fermenting yeasts and as such are members of the ale family.
