Victory Art Brew Celebration Stout

Brewed by Victory Art Brew
Ivanteevka, Moscow obl., Russia
5.5% Stout | 44 Ratings | 55 IBU |
Celebration Stout is our first commertial brew. Once tasted magnificent oatmeal stouts from Samuel Smith’s and Young’s, our brew master decided to create something in this area. Original recipe was firstly created at our experimental mini-brewery and formed the basis of the beer. Big percentage of special malts, unmalted roasted barley and oatmeal flakes in combination with striking dose of aroma hops make this beer extremely deep. Despite of relatively high gravity and creamy viscous taste, this beer is very drinkable, with nice notes of chocolate in aftertaste.
Celebration Stout was awarded with a golden medal at XVIII International Professional Conest "Beer of the Year 2013" organized by All-Russian Research Institute of Beer, Softdrinks and Wine Industry of Russian Academy of Agricultural Sciences and The Union of Russian Brewers at November 2013.
At the contest "Brewer’s Pride" as a part of the First All-Russian Conference of Independent Brewers and SoftDrink Producers "Independent Brewing, Cider- and Mead- Making of Russia" organized by National Union of Beer and Drink Producers at March 2014 our Celebration Stout took golden medal.
Did we reach the level of Samuel Smith? It’s up to you, drink our stout!
