Brewhouse Rarities Mint Chocolate Stout

FlyingDog_MintChocolateStout_6pack

Think our latest Brewhouse Rarities release, Mint Chocolate Stout, was inspired by our love of its ice cream namesake? Think again.

We grow a Chocolate Mint herb in our staff garden, which is where this beer was born. 

The first Brewhouse Rarities beer to make its way into 6-packs, this beer is a medium-bodied, low ABV stout with subtle, not-too-sweet notes of peppermint and chocolate.  The yeast strain was selected for the creaminess and residual sugar it imparts on the beer. And both peppermint and cocoa were added post-fermentation for a refreshing, minty sweet finish.

The goal was to have an easy-drinking dessert beer that you can have more than one pint of. Here are the specifics:

  • 5.7% ABV
  • 30 IBU
  • Specialty Malts: Caramel, Chocolate, Black, Roasted Barley, Flaked Oats, Midnight Wheat
  • Hops: Perle
  • Specialty Ingredients: Cocoa, peppermint

We also threw in a few sprigs of Chocolate Mint, for good measure. 

You can find Mint Chocolate Stout on tap and on shelves starting next week. Be the first to try it at our taproom release Tuesday, March 25
