This Russian Imperial Stout sticks to traditional style guidelines utilizing English Chocolate Malt and German Chocolate Wheat to bring forth a rich chestnut color and deep tan head. Never ones to stick completely to tradition though, brewers decided to get extreme with Red Dawn and highlight the roast characteristics of this brew that are often masked by the chocolate sweetness. The use of Canada Pale Malt, Castle Special B Malt and English Black Malt gives this brew a complex flavor of raisin, plum and roasted nuts. Magnum hops were used for bitterness to balance out the chocolate malts, while flaked barley and oats were layered in to create a velvety mouthfeel and smooth finish.
Boasting 3 pounds of pumpkin per keg, coupled with lactose milk sugar, a touch of chocolate malt for a ruby/orange color, caramel and cara malts for sweetness and copious quantities of pale malt, the only ingredient left for this liquid pumpkin pie libation was spices. Staying true to RI, we sourced those spices locally from Spice Mill, located in Wakefield, RI. The mixture of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice and cloves will ‘warm you up with a cold one,’ all fall and winter long! Available: on draft and in bottles 9/1 – 12/31.
RIèzes, our latest barrel aged brew, is a copper hued Belgian style ale. The hops take a back seat in this brew as the malt characteristics shine through. Munich malt, Belgian Special B and Belgian Candy Sugar bring forth aromas and tastes of raisin, brown sugar and caramel. The Belgian yeast strain, with reported links to Chimay, rounds out this brew and offers a sweet bakers bread finish. Find a corner of your own to stash this limited release ale aged in oak barrels.
