Deschutes Brewing’s newest beer The Stoic is hitting shelves. Stoic, a quadruple, is the result of 4 nuanced fermentations. This quad touts the use of pomegranate molasses, Belgian yeast, and aged in pinot noir and rye whiskey barrels.
Our brewers describe a simple recipe ironically hard to brew. The classic malt bill is all Pilsner malt. Hallartau, Czech Saaz, and Northern Brewer hops sustain a deftly understated flavor. Belgian candy sugars add impact and the smooth body required of any Belgian-style brew worth quaffing. A healthy portion of pomegranate molasses casts an opulent, tangy twist, while a vintage Belgian yeast strain provides a solid reference point. Pinot Noir and Rye Whiskey barrel-aging suggest notes of spice, citrus, pepper, vanilla, and toasted caramel like offerings to the ancients.
