The Stooge is a low ABV American Brown Ale, packed with loads of speciality malts, brewed with a mixture of UK & US hops and dry hopped with lovely US Cascade hops. Sort of like a lower ABV version of the beer we brewed with Dark Star ‘Rock Star’, but with a completely different recipe.

jjsint (1807) - Stuntney, Cambridgeshire, ENGLAND - JAN 11, 2016
Keg at Sheffield Tap. Impenetrable brown. Tiny off-white head. Scent of chocolate and oak, with a bit of smoke. Sweet taste with a woody and slightly astringent bitter edge. Massive carbonation is a real boost to the palate. Amazing. The perfect brown ale? Maybe. Awfully close at any rate.

shoulderbroken (3222) - Tokyo, JAPAN - JAN 11, 2016
Cask at Craft Covent Garden. Brown ale like... Light spice, ginger, malty. Taste is nice, malt, spice again, malt verges on the sweet side, but not cloying. Touch of creaminess. Nice.
