Lovejoys Enns River Stout


Formerly brewed at Lovejoys Tap Room & Brewery
Austin, Texas USA
Style: Stout | Ratings: 2 | Special Seasonal | Alcohol: 6.25%
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
