Quakertown Stout is a slamming concoction of dark roasted malts, oats, and the most robust maple syrup we could get our hands on. We brew it to commemorate the original Quakertown community (1875-1922) and the enriching music festivals and community events that are held in Quakertown Park today. Made with two row, brown, roasted barley, Blackprinz, and wheat malts; along with oats and maple syrup. Hopped with Columbus hops.

651 ml. bottle. Pours a thin, but well retained, tiny bubbled light beige head, with some lacing, over a dark ruby brown (SRM 24) body......nose is roasted malts, with melanoidin tones (cocoa, more dominant chocolate, light coffee), light cereal, minimal esters, minimal hops.....taste is sweet to start, with cocoa, chocolate, dominating in the roasted malts, slight coffee tones, no dried fruits, light maple syrup tones, leading to a light simple bitter finish......mouth feel, body light of medium, sticky, alcohol warmth present, carbonation low, finish soft with minimal acid. This is a relatively simple Imperial Stout, dominated by sweetness and the roasted malts. The hops are somewhat underrepresented, and there is little of the depth of malt complexity represented by dried fruit, umami. Also given the malt bill the body is really off. The creaminess of oats, and the thicker mouth feel of wheat are not there. All those complaints made, this is not an awful beer, and is technically well made. It is just not a particularly good Imperial Stout. Rework the hop bill, add more oats to the malts, and consider a change of yeast. Finally, aging it a red wine barrel might correct everything. Experimentation is in order. BJCP 7/3/13/3/6

On tap at Deep Ellum. Black pour, ruby at the edges. Aroma is chocolate, boozy, roasted malts, earthy. Flavor is similar. A little thin. With oats and this much malt is like it to be a bit more robust. Some decent chocolate notes. Not bad.
