‘Stout’ for many years meant a Porter of substantial strength and at several times and places in history the term ‘Double Brown Stout’ has signified a variety dark, strong brews. Our favorite is the Scandinavian or Baltic version, emphasizing the chocolate-y and dark dried fruit character over the burnt or ashy roast flavors of some its cousins. Unlike most members of the Stout and Porter family, our DBS is fermented with a lager yeast (rather than ale), whose cleaner fermentation profile allows the malt and hop flavors do the talking.
