OVER THE AGE
Sweet stout, also known as “cream stout,” is of opaque black colour. The dominating flavours are those of chocolate, caramel and coffee. Lactose, milk sugar, has given the beer more body and sweetness whereas roasted barley has released its specific bitterness on top of its unique colour. The barley-produced bitterness and hop-produced bitterness balance the flavour. You can’t put it down. With the use of advanced technology, nitrogen has produced creamy texture and a beautiful beer head of tiny bubbles.
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.
Milk sugar (lactose) is not assimilated by yeast during the fermentation process. For this reason, milk sugar stays in beer and accounts for pleasurable sweetness and fullness.
Loads of skimmed cocoa make the real core of this beer. The intense aroma of the beer brings to mind milk chocolate but its flavour is filled with dark, raw, bitter cocoa.
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.
