Watts Xylocopa Stout Can


Availability: In stock



This beer is built around a robust combination of dark roasted barley and black patent malt. The black malt is toasted as dark as possible, pushed right to the edge of burning, but quenched at the last second to prevent combustion. This intense roasting process develops the black color in the malt and the dark roasted flavors, but also paradoxically drives off the harshest aspects of the toasted character. What remains contributes a smooth, focused, coffee-like flavor to the beer.
