TRVE Brewing Company Stout O)))
What the brewers say
One of our original recipes. A classic American-style stout: dry and robust with enough dry hopping to be crisp, but not hoppy.
What our panel thought
Hints of smoke mingle with the roast-malt aroma along with hops notes of pine and earthy dankness. The smoke character carries through and increases slightly in the flavor. Coupled with a bit of pine hops bitterness and slight minerality, it creates the impression of thinness. Finishes dry and mildly bitter, but not harsh.
What our editors thought
A whiff of campfire and charred oak subtly weave through the nose, while the sip shocks with the sharp bite of bitter hops and tannic malt before quickly fading.
