Dry Stout ABV 5.3%
Fermentables: 2-Row, Roasted Barley, CaraPils, Flaked Barley, Coffee Malt
Modeled after one of the most classic of beers – Guinness Dry Stout – Jailbreak is deceptively light, with little sweetness and a moderate hops bitterness. We played with the recipe a bit this year, adding tiny amounts of coffee malt and Special B. Otherwise, we kept it traditional, using primarily roasted barley and flaked barley to create the expected dry and roasty character. A dry English yeast does the rest of the work, adding subtle esters and a clean, dry finish. The name is taken from the title of a song by 70s Irish rock band Thin Lizzy.
