Great Lakes Blackout Stout

Great-Lakes-Blackout-StoutNeed someone to help you paint your bedroom? We know a guy. Change your oil? We know a guy. Loan you some bold, bitter hops and toasty black malt? We definitely know a guy. Named for the infamous Blackout of 2003 that left the Northeastern United States in complete darkness, Blackout Stout is a pretty useful friend to have around. Hearty and resourceful, he knows how to make his own fun. Crack open a bottle and you will too.

From the Brewer – “This strong, rich brew originated from recipes that British brewers tailored for the czars and czarinas of the Russian Imperial court. Rich malt body and bold hop flavor”

Enjoy with: Grilled red meats, wild game, caviar, and chocolate desserts.

Tröegs JavaHead Stout

Troegs-JavaHead-StoutFrom the Brewer – “JavaHead Stout contains a blend of locally roasted espresso and Kenyan coffee beans by St. Thomas Roasters in Linglestown PA. JavaHead’s recipe is based on our original Oatmeal Stout. After the boil, the hot wort passes through our hopback vessel on its way to fermentation. Packed full of whole leaf hops and a bed of ground coffee beans, the hopback vessel is similar to using a huge French press, intensifying the coffee nose and releasing subtle hints of coffee flavor. The result is a lush, smooth mouthfeel balanced with cocoa, roast, and subtle coffee flavors.”

Harpoon Chocolate Stout

Harpoon-Chocolate-StoutOur head brewer at our Windsor brewery homebrewed a batch of chocolate stout for himself after trying the style at a beer dinner and loving it.  After several Harpooners tried Scott’s batch, we knew that we needed to add this beer to our lineup. It was originally introduced as a limited edition extra in our winter mix pack back in 2008, but it was soon apparent that our drinkers wanted more of this beer (a beer made with chocolate…not too hard to understand!), so we brought it back in 6-packs in 2010.

From the Brewer – “A chocolate stout is a beer with a noticeable dark chocolate flavor. This flavor is created from the use of darker, more aromatic malt that has been roasted or kilned until it acquires a chocolate color. Harpoon Chocolate Stout is brewed with an abundance of chocolate malt and a touch of chocolate.

Hop Bitterness (IBU’s): 35
Alcohol by volume: 5.9%

Brooklyn Dry Irish Stout

Brooklyn-Dry-Irish-StoutThe Irish Stout beer style was once produced by dozens of breweries in Ireland. These days it is only produced by three major breweries in Ireland, none of them Irish-owned, though several small breweries and brewpubs make stout as well. People are often surprised to hear that Irish stouts are among the lightest beers on draft, both in alcohol and in calories. These beers were originally designed as “session pints”, a term denoting beers that one can stick with for a long evening. These days, the major producers of Irish Stout dissolve nitrogen into the beer to produce the trademark head, a practice that started in 1960.

From the Brewer – “Brooklyn Irish Stout is brewed the old-fashioned way, without the nitrogen addition. A large portion of the grain is roasted like coffee beans, developing the typical color and flavor of this beer. Aside from British pale malts, the beer includes caramel malts, black patent malt, unmalted black barley and a proportion of flaked raw barley, which helps the beer develop a beautiful, thick natural head. The famous East Kent Golding hop lends to the earthy aroma. The beer is neither filtered, nor fined and has a light, brisk carbonation. The blend of grains gives the beer an espresso-like bite, followed by coffee and chocolate flavors. At 4.7% ABV, this is among the lightest beers we make, and one of our favorites. Be sure to serve it with “two fingers” of foam, and enjoy the flavor of Brooklyn Irish Stout. Slainte!

Great with corned beef, cabbage, shepherd’s pie, pots o’ gold.

Hops: Willamette, Fuggles, Cascade, East Kent Golding
Malts: Two-row English, black malt, black barley, caramel malt and unmalted barley
Alcohol by volume: 5.9%
