ESPRESSO ROAST STOUT
A stout brewed with lactose, aged in Bourbon Barrels with espresso roast coffee added. A collaboration with Cultivate featuring Espresso Mystique which has a base of Natural Brazilian coffee which is sweet and smooth that is roasted a little on the dark end to enhance the chocolatiness. The other coffee in the blend is a Natural Ethiopian bean which is roasted to a medium to preserve the complexity and nuance without under developing the flavour and adds a fruity note.
The Brew Sheet
Alcohol by Volume (a measure of booziness created by the yeast)
Beer styles are the categorisation of beer into easily distinguishable types. When doing this we look at history, colour, carbonation, bitterness, ingredients, mouthfeel… the list goes on
We'd typically use a lightly kilned Base Malt in a beer recipe, then add Speciality malts (sometimes darker, more complex, different flavours) in small quantities to change the overall taste and colour of the beer.
Hops are used in loads of ways, and they can give different characteristics to beer such as Aroma and Bitterness– this is why they rock!

Please note, the date on the base of the bottle is the bottled on date, not the best before date - the USA way!
