BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Brewery Ommegang
New York, United States

Style: English Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.90%

Availability: Rotating

Notes / Commercial Description:
Candi Stout is our fusion of a Belgian dark ale and a classic stout. A rich blend of roasted malts is blended with cocoa nibs and candi syrup (traditionally used in Belgian abbey ales) during brewing resulting in a wonderfully drinkable stout with notes of roasted malt, chocolate, and a hint of sweetness. A surprisingly light mouthfeel and effervescent carbonation deliver a sessionable drinkability not often found in stouts today.

Pours a deep chocolate brown with a thick one and a half finger beige head atop,that settles nicely into a frothy mass after quite some time.Mild yeast phenols and dark roast coffee in the nose,not real big in the aroma department.The feel has a whipped 'airy' lightness to it wich is very nice.More earthy and roasted on the palate,there is some chocolate but it's of the dark bitter variety,very drinkable.The name might be a little misleading,there is candied sugar yes but it's on the drier side...wich isn't bad by any means.

Served in a flute from the bottle.

Appearance: Semi thick black body with a brown tinted body. Tan head which rose thick roughly almost two fingers length.

Smell: Super light malt with hint of espresso.

Taste: Bitter coffee with touch of malt. Had bitter dark chocolate feel.

Mouth: Dry feel with bitter finish. Carbonation is medium at best coming off a bit heavy.

Overall: Descent brew, you know I can see a barrel aged version of this coming soon but you never...the slight tweaking could make this a classic.

On tap at the House of Brews. Black body. Smells of roasted malt and a touch of dark fruit. Tastes of dark fruit and an aggressive roasted malt flavor. Bananas and light spice from the yeast. Back end is dry, though still tastes like chocolate. Light body and very drinkable. Excellent all around.

ommegang can do no wrong, i love their beer and i love their role in the american craft scene, which has been bringing traditional belgian beer styles into popular beer culture here, innovating within a cool set of boundaries, and staying inspired by the old world, giving attention to styles that deserve it but might not have stayed relevant without them. this beer is a great example of that, a belgian dark ale inspired stout, which has some of that chateau abbey malt and candy sugar flavor among the more traditional dark stout maltiness. roast and coffee and baking chocolate abound in nose and flavor, properly bitter but with that belgian strong ale sweetness to it as well, a cool way to balance those darker elements without the more common and sometimes one dimensional caramel malt middle, i love it. good complexity here, not quite as belgian yeast driven as i usually expect from these guys, but its there in part, more about the malt here than the yeast though for sure. i love the richness for the modest abv, and the higher carbonation is awesome too. it fades slowly at the finish, not sugary or dry, just sort of lingering awhile. really pleasant beer, uniquely and expertly made like all of the ommegang stuff. still one of my favorite breweries anywhere!

not the Saison that I ordered but was pleased. Really like Belgian dark ales, not overly fond of stouts. This was a delicious blend. Nice hints of chocolate and coffee with out smacking you in the head. Overall, next time I may ask for it.
