As the blizzard rages on, There is one brave warrior keeping a watchful eye over the snow covered lands. Introducing the protector of the realm ( Winter Knight ) our Chocolate Raspberry Vanilla Sour Stout. We kettle soured a rich 6.5% stout and infused it with organic cocoa powder and Dark Belgian Candi Sugar in the boil. We then added raspberry puree and vanilla after primary fermentation. Defend the frozen North and join the violet owl's sour crusade!
Sour Stouts are the hardest beer style you could brew. I have been trying since 2016 during my homebrew days. This is the first time combining Raspberry, Chocolate and Vanilla in a sour stout base. Winter Knight will lead the way as our first Sour Stout we make at SNS. I was inspired by an image in my mind of a purple owl covered in silver frost bitten armor. Very specific but I believe things come to us in life for a reason and most of my sours are inspired by life moments.
