Outcast Last Minute Stout

Brewery: Outcast Brewing
Country: Canada
ABV: 7.5%
Style: American Stout
Other Notes: Stout with vanilla, hazelnut and chocolate added. Brewed at Coulee Brew Co. for Outcast Brewing

Brewer Description: (from can) We do our best work under stress. So with this brew, we knew we wanted to brew a bold stout but had no idea what we wanted to add to it… until four days after it went into the fermenter. This stout is bold and flavourful, with a nice smooth and roasty character that lets the additives shine. There’s no minute, like the last minute.

Intro: A 473ml can, with a canned on date that really isn’t too visible, but I would guess 1st November 2017, ‘nearly didn’t happen’. Poured into a snifter glass.
Appearance: A dark dark brown to black colour with a one finger tanned head that dissipated fairly quickly but left some nice spotty lacing.
Aroma: Vanilla, chocolate, cocoa, hazelnut, cream, honey with light roastiness and a touch of coffee.
Taste: Sweet-ish, light roast, vanilla, creamy coffee, hazelnut, caramel malt, biscuit, coffee and chocolate with a lightly earthy herbal finish.
Mouthfeel: Smooth, medium bodied with moderate to light carbonation.
Overall: Nice and tasty with good vanilla, creamy and nutty flavours.

Outcast Neon Nightmare

Brewery: Outcast Brewing
Country: Canada
ABV: 7.8%
Style: American Double IPA
Other Notes: 70 IBUs. Double Dry Hopped New England Double IPA

Brewer Description: (from can) Last summer, we released our first canned beer called Neon Dreams. We took that delicious New England style pale ale and turned it up to 11. Aggressively dry hopped twice with citra, mosaic and galaxy hops and fermented with an English yeast strain, this beer is bold but delightfully flavourful. Keep cold and enjoy as fresh as possible!

Intro: A 473ml can, with a canned on date of 6th June 2018, ‘what’s up Europe’. Poured into a Lost Abbey teku glass.
Appearance: A very hazy dark orange colour with a two finger white head that had pretty good retention and left some sticky lacing.
Aroma: Orange juice and orange peel with hints of creamy mango smoothie and pine.
Taste: Light to moderate bitterness, orange juice, orange peel, grapefruit rind, lightly herbal with a hint of mango and mango smoothie at the end.
Mouthfeel: Medium to full bodied with moderate carbonation.
Overall: It was ok. An easy drinking DIPA with great aromas. A bit more bitter than expected for an NEIPA, but not a big problem there.
