COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Firewood Stout is a luscious dry oatmeal stout, brewed to celebrate Henrik Øl & Vinstove’s first 20 years of existence. Dry, roasty, velvety smooth and black as night, you’ll be hard pressed to find a more complex and satisfying stout at this strength. You wouldn’t think it’s only 3.7% ABV!

Three glasses at Schoukjelleren, Oslo 6/3-2013. Roasty and dry. Very good. A lot of taste - I was very surprised to learn that this beer holds only 3,7 ABV. Judging by appearance and taste, I guessed 5-6 ABV. Salutations to the brewers!

On tap at Henrik, Bergen. Pours a deep brown to black colour with a beige creamy medium to big head. Has a great roasted aroma with coffee and sweet dark chocolate. The flavour follows up with a lot of roasted coffee. Has a light and slick mouth feel, and a medium to heavy coffee bitterness. A good, tasteful and aromatic dry stout on only 3,7%!

On tap @ Henrik, Bergen. The very celebration beer for Henrik’s twenty years of nourishing Bergen’s beer-thirsty population - I’m excited! :-) Pours a deep, near-black body with a large creamy beige head. Aroma is deep leathery licorice and ground coffee tones, toffee, bread crust and hints of caramel and cream. Nice. Taste is complex malt tones imbued with caramel, toffee, burnt toast, ashes, espresso, grains and hints of dark chocolate and licorice far in the back. Full, creamy body with mild carbonation. This one has nearly everything you’d expect from a full-blown stout, with the exeptipn of boozy tones and warming alcohol, which is of course due to the low ABV. A highly drinkable and remarkably well-brewed dry stout from ABC Brewing, which beats the hell out of classics like Guinness. Well done! :-)

Strong, malty and fruity aroma. Soft, roasted grain, sourish rye bread. Complex, intruiging grain character. Soot.
