SALAMANDER Chocolate Mint Foreign Extra Stout Nitro
This traditional British style was originally brewed for export. Designed to survive the perils of voyage to the tropical countries, it has gained the name of “Tropical Stout”. What’s typical for this style is intense aroma of roasted cereal, freshly ground coffee, and bitter chocolate. There are subtle overtones of sweet, dry fruit, liquorice and molasses. The dark Foreign Extra Stout has been enriched with cocoa and fresh chocolate mint, which creates the amazing effect of drinkable mint chocolate. Join us for the release party.

The unique combination of caramel and roasted malts produces strong flavours of the Stout-type beers. There is intense flavour of bitter chocolate and roasted coffee, as well as subtle tones of ashes. Another extra ingredient typical for Stout is roasted, unsweetened barley, which brings about roasted tones, slight acidity and bitterness to balance the sweet flavour.
The bitter, traditional Magnum hop is added to produce bitterness in order to balance the strong and sweet base. The effect is a well-balanced beer that you can’t put down. We have two extra ingredients: cocoa and chocolate mint. Loads of skimmed cocoa makes the core of the beer. Its intense taste and aroma bring to mind milk chocolate. As for its taste, it is closer to noble, dark and bitter cocoa.
Chocolate mint– grown to meet the needs of this particular beer style in a greenhouse in the Opolszczyzna. When it was ready, we have cut it down and frozen to preserve the aroma till the moment the beer is served. This is a unique variety of mint that is not well known but has a unique aroma of…. mint chocolates.
Nitrogen’s ability to dissolve in liquids is several times lower than that of carbon dioxide. What we have used at Browar Stu Mostów is advanced technological solutions that allow us to dissolve as much nitrogen as possible in beer. Right after opening and pouring the beer into a glass, nitrogen escapes as quickly as possible creating a cascade effect of a huge amount of tiny bubbles. After a while, nitrogen moves up whisking protein dissolved in beer. As a result of this process creamy and long-lasting beer head of tiny bubbles is produced, which is not available in carbonated beers.

These beers have been imported as part of the Beer Bridges between Poland and Spain, and Poland and Britain.
The Beer Bridges offer more than collaborative brewing and exchanging brewers’ experiences. They aim at enriching the craft beer culture. The culinary bridge usually includes promotion of heritage, customs and trends. Brewing in Wrocław opens up an opportunity to discover the cities whose brewing traditions go back 800 years and where the beer revolution started in Poland.
The beer bridges are a one-of-its kind initiative. There are a few sectors where collaboration on such a scale is possible. Thanks to such projects craft has been enriched and our vision has been realized. Beer brings history, present day and past together. People, cities, and countries.
