Societe The Pugilist

What the brewers say

“A celebration of roasted barley, The Pugilist is nearly black in color. Our dry stout is sessionably low in alcohol but chock full of delightful aromatics and flavor nuances that include hops bitterness and a slight touch of acidity, both of which provide contrast to the beer’s big, roast-heavy character.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Roasted barley, coffee, chocolate, caramel, apple esters, woody hops—all of it well integrated.”

Flavor: ”Light-bodied and moderately roasty with notes of dark chocolate and caramel. No hops to speak of with the bitterness just there to provide complexity against the dry finish. Slight astringency on the finish.”

Overall: “Hops flavor a touch high, but still in the zone. A lawnmower stout for summers days when you want a bit more flavor than a pale lager can offer.”
