KELOWNA, BC – Tree Brewing has announced the return of a winter seasonal beer that was first released around this time last year, and is described as the brewery’s “interpretation of a classic dry stout”.
Tree Old School Stout has the following tasting notes:
The word stout originally meant “proud” or “brave” but after the 14th century it took on the connotation of “strong”. While our Old School Stout isn’t exactly strong in alcohol (5.5% ABV), it is very much a rich full bodied Ale dominated by chocolate and roasted malt flavours and very well balanced. Dry stouts achieve a dry-roasted character through the use of roasted barley, just one of the six malts in our Old School Stout recipe. A subtle bitterness leads to a long creamy finish on this aphotic beauty.
Tree Old School Stout is out now in a limited run of 650 ml bottles available at select liquor stores in BC.
