COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Cask, Occasional; Also available in bottle
Rich, dark and creamy, 1913 Cornish Stout is crafted from a recently discovered traditional recipe gleamed from our brewing journals of 1913. It has a fullsome depth and complexity of flavour. The chocolate and coffee overtones are balanced with roast malt and toffee fudge leading to a velvet smoothness on the tongue. Try it with a chilli or wholesome red meat dish.
Stout has not been brewed at our Brewery since rationing during the Great War restricted the availability of the dark malts used to brew these beers. We have meticulously researched our oldest brewing journals to recreate one of our most popular beers from 100 years ago. 1913 Cornish stout is rich, full, smooth and chocolaty, yet is light on the palate with no lingering bitterness.
Malt: Maris Otter, Malted Oats, Crystal, Smoked Malt, Chocolate Malt, Roasted Barley, Brewing Sugar
Hops: Fuggles

Phyrexian (5) - ITALY - JAN 2, 2014 does not count
Stout molto scura, lascia filtrare poca luce. Schiuma un po’ fragile, poco cremosa e poco persistente. Aroma di cioccolato, caramello, una punta di caffè. In bocca è incredibilmente equilibrata fra il dolce e l’amaro; è presente anche una nota aspra non secondaria, per nulla fastidiosa, anzi che rende l’amaro poco persistente nonostante alcune note affumicate, e rende la birra dissetante e facile da bere. Al retrolfatto si sentono addirittura alcune note fruttate. Un’ottima birra estremamente bilanciata, da bere fresca ma non fredda.
