Enns River Stout is a newer Lovejoy's recipe. It received such a great response the first time we brewed it that we have decided to make it a part of our regular line-up of beers. This beer is closer to a black stout than a brown stout. A little higher percentage of roast malt is used to give it a deep, dark color. Hop bitterness is quite low, but not absent, complementing the roast and chocolate flavors. A slight warming sensation can be perceived due to a higher alcohol content. We named this beer in honor of Saint Florian, patron saint of brewers, barrel-makers, firefighters, chimney sweeps, and soap-boilers, amongst other things. Florian was a member of the Roman army that was flayed and drowned in the Enns River for his admission of Christianity in 304 AD. It is said that Florian once put out a whole town fire by throwing a single barrel of water on it! On a lighter note, the Enns River is also a natural divider between upper and lower Austria

Tap. A pretty standard stout. Coffee flavor. Nasty aftertaste gives it some demerits. Darkish appearance, too small of a head. LJs has made better stouts.

Nice one, even in the heat of mid May in Texas (at brewers fest). Thick, tarlike, and with enough substance and character to carry over the IPA sampled prior and come out a winner.
