STOUTER LIMITS: Seattle Premiere Event at Taproom
We’re releasing the fourth beer in our 10th Anniversary Collaborations Series with the great folks at the Homebrewers Guild of Seattle Proper. This is the homebrew club where our co-founder Adam Robbings cut his teeth, leading to the formation of our brewery. In fact, a number of our recipes still date back to those heady days of homebrewing. Homebrewing epitomizes our “glass backwards” philosophy— brewing unconstrained by production efficiencies—which Adam learned at the club and carried forward to this very day at Reuben’s Brews.
Stouter Limits is a massive, 12.5% ABV imperial stout that required tons of malt to achieve its dark color, thick body, and full mouthfeel. In short, this is a rich beer that packs a wallop. On the nose, aromas of dark chocolate cherries, roast coffee, and licorice are joined by a suggestions of herbal, woody hops and chocolate banana bread, while on the palate, notes of smoky pepper, light toffee, and caramel chase bigger flavors of sweet and spicy chocolate. (A barrel-aged version is also coming at the end of the year).
The Seattle debut of Stouter Limits happens on Saturday, April 2 with both cans and draft available. Our Reuben’s Brews team will be on hand for a toast at 3pm, too!
