Sawdust City Sawdust City Winewood: 1606 Stout
Our very own Skinny Dippin’ Stout aged for 12 months in Ontario red wine barrels, “1606” has all the roasted, chocolate notes you’ve come to love in our stout. We’ve just made it betterer! There’s now a big oak character on the nose, along with a slight funk and a lovely vinous character as well. Oh yeah, we dosed the barrels with raspberries throughout the year too, so there’s a slight cheek puckering tartness in there… just to round everything out!
Many stouts do not fit the classic "Irish" definition as exemplified by Guinness, either due to their hop or roast rates, or higher gravity (in the case of many American stouts). They are still basic stouts, however, not falling into any of the subclasses.
