I hope you enjoyed our white Christmas. If nothing else, it provided us with proof that Winter is indeed here, and Winter means Stout season. There’s been a virtual flood lately of big, dark, bold and barrel-aged Stouts. Have you been stocking up your cellar with them like I have?
Even though I love all those rich, heavy barrel-aged Stouts (and Porters), sometimes that 12% – 14% ABV can be a bit daunting to face – especially if you’re trying to down a whole 22 oz bottle by yourself. So perhaps it’s time for a stout that’s a bit more approachable. Arriving this Friday, and clocking in at just 6%, Black Raven Brewing Company (CBM Sponsor) is releasing their Feather Weather Mocha Stout.
