Notes: American Stout is the oddball of the stout family. It's a stout that is fermented with a clean and crisp yeast (opposed to the fruity and softer English strains). It incorporates a variety of specialty malts beyond roasted and burnt and welcomes the use of resinous, American hops! Our grist structure for Black Tie Affair creates layers of diverse toasted cocoa, coffee, toffee, and maltiness from aggressive quantities of specialty malt. Higher hop loads, a thorough yeast strain and a fermentable mash profile create great drinkability while also allowing the hops to better express themselves. Hopwise, we used Columbus, Willamette, and Centennial for a unique flavor profile, with some classic American hoppiness! Bottoms up!!

Tasted from a 12 oz can bought at the brewery.

L - A lovely stout. Extremely dark color could be brown or black and totally opaque. Fluffy, semi-solid tan head is heavy and persistent. Huge sheets of lace.

S - Nice malt aromas are primary, with chocolate, coffee and lightly burnt grains. Hops aren't too evident, but may contribute an earthy note.

T - Very clean, crisp stout flavors of roasted grain, coffee and chocolate. Hops are in the background and are earthy and lightly grassy.

F - Thick, creamy body. Medium carbonation. Moderate hops bitterness adds to an astringent bitterness from the roasted grains. Alcohol has a mild presence. Lightly sweet finish.

O - This is a great stout. It's clean and crisp, with great malt flavors.
