More Complicated Than Your Girlfriend Stout
Price per litre:
Yes, you love her. But oh boy she can be hard. But then again did you want her to be the boring, mass-produced lager type, girlfriends vanilla? Of course not. To celebrate the intricacies of a relationship, The Flying Duchman created this Stout, where there’s a lot going on. It is matured on Coffee Beans, Cocoa Beans, Bourbon Vanilla Beans & Tahitian Vanilla Beans. Wow, that sounds good. To top it all off, it is aged in American oak chips. This is a large beer full of dark roasted malts. Your mouth will be filled with coffee and chocolate flavors, supported by the warmth of vanilla. Everything is balanced by a good load of hops, which will bring this beer a bitterness of 85 EBU, which they hope is much higher than in your relationship. Cheers for her!
Taste: This stout has a very nice balance between the roasted coffee and dark chocolate, rounded off with soft creamy vanilla in the aftertaste.

The history of the stout and exactly how this style originated is not entirely clear. It is suspected that the style originated from the brewing of heavier Poorters, then called “Stout Porters”. In England Stout is mentioned for the first time in the Egerton Manuscript from the year 1677. Stout therefore means strong or powerful in English.
In general, breweries use heavier roasted malts in their stouts with more emphasis on coffee tones.
Also in the category Stout beers different forms have emerged: Dry Stout, Oatmeal Stout, Russian Imperial Stout, etc.
