Stout Tasting 101

Stout Tasting 101

Stouts are deep dark beers, packed with flavor, all sorts of flavor! At the tasting bar on Saturday, May 12, 2012, 2-5 pm we will be exploring the wonderful world of stouts. Stout can be an incredibly diverse style of beer ranging from the traditional bone dry Irish style stout to the sweetness of a milk stout. Coffee and cocoa flavors  are common in stouts but fruit and barrel flavors are also often appreciated by the stout lover.

Elysian Dragontooth Stout

We have an intriguing stout line up for you to explore. Elysian Brewing made the official 2012 Seattle Beer Week brew, Split Shot Espresso Stout. Taste this delicious milk espresso stout next to the Elysian stout standard Dragontooth Stout. Southern Tier Brewing Company is renown for their stouts and on Saturday you can taste their prime example of an oatmeal stout. Want something BIG, BOLD and a little bit boozy? Great Divide Oak Aged Yeti Stout may be just what you are looking for! This imperial stout has been aged on French and American oak chips until it exudes an earthy, almost unami quality to play against the assertive chocolate notes in this stout.
