The Stag Series draws upon our 150 years of brewing knowledge at the August Schell Brewery to create a collection of innovative, limited edition beers. The first release is our Schmaltz’s Alt beer that has been aged in red wine barrels.

Dark brown with a faint ring of bone white head in my glass. A malty aroma with a hint of chocolate and a very smooth wine character - not just vinous, but smells like a wine. Cereal grain and chocolate malts in the body and a deliciate red wine character in the finish. Thick and smooth mouthfeel.

The red wine barrels used for aging have done their job well.It has been a long time since I have tasted a beer that was not lagered in a stainless steel or copper vat.One of the smoothest brews I have ever drank with a very interesting blend of subtle flavors.Lack of any real quantity of malts being used are obvious by the Dads root beer type of head.Too expensive for what it is.

22 oz bottle from Liquor Mart. Dark amber color, beautiful creamy head. Aroma is slightly malty with subtle cherry and vanilla notes. Very smooth flavor with some prominent cherry to it. Very smooth finish with the wine barrel characteristics coming through. This beer is exceptionally subtle in a way that I’ve never experienced before. Wonderfully understated and amazing beer.
