Stout is the illegitimate child of a beer that enjoyed the height of its popularity in early 1700s England: Porter (although it’s experiencing a nice resurgence today). Porter was the name used to describe a popular dark beer among street and river porters (carriers) that had been made with roasted malts. Stout was a word used to describe a “strong” version of Porter, so it was used as a descriptor much the same way we use it today. Towards the end of the 19th century Stout gained the reputation of being a health-strengthening drink, so it was used by athletes as well as nursing mothers and anyone trying to recover from an illness. This is a beer with a dark side. Held up to the light of day……well, there is no light of day coming through this beer. Revelations Stout has a presence all its own that commands attention. And its jet black body, with its creamy head lightly sitting atop your pint like a nimbus cloud is a joy to behold. At the first heavenly sip, our stout’s deliciously rich, deep flavor contains notes of dark chocolate, caramel, and a hint of roasted coffee. While it has been a staple beer among enthusiasts, we have found that many beer drinkers unfamiliar with the style have found a new favorite. While some think that it will be too bitter or roasty, the first taste wins them over by warming their bellies as well as their hearts. Rich, hearty beer deserves rich hearty food. Try it with steak or meat pie. Enjoy it with an Irish-type cheese like Dubliner Cheddar. And of course, it goes effortlessly with anything chocolate like chocolate soufflé or tiramisu. Or try it with Josh G’s personal favorite: a simple no-bake cookie

Growler... RBSG 2014… Cloudy dark-brown pour with a small, creamy, khaki head. Good retention. The nose is a lush mélange of roasted tree nuts, milk chocolate and vanilla. Medium-bodied with a milky mouthfeel and soft carbonation. The flavor is deep-roasted and acrid with tons of black mocha - Cuban espresso and an 85% cacao chocolate bar - in the finish. Really enjoyable.
