Stone Launches Master of Disguise “Golden Stout” [VIDEO]

Stone Brewing Co. (Escondido, CA) has released the latest Stochascity Project offering, Master of Disguise Golden Imperial Stout.

Yes, this was once an April Fool’s joke back in 2010 with Brewdog. That got Stone thinking about what gives an imperial stout the roasty, bold flavors while still keeping the beer a lighter, golden color. Could it be possible? The answer lies: coffee, cocoa, flaked oats, and pale malts.

“To achieve the qualities of a stout, we relied on our prior experience brewing with coffee to pull flavors from the beans without affecting the hue of the beer,” explains Steele. “As the beer warms and opens up, the chocolate adds another level of complexity and helps build the traditional flavors typically associated with dark beers. It’s been really fun to see a prank with questionable viability become a reality.”

Stone Stochascity Master of Disguise turned out roasty and bold, yet golden. Take it from Mitch above, and give it a try.

Style: Imperial Stout (ish) (w/ Cocoa, Coffee)
Hops: Liberty and Nugget
Malts: Carapils, English Amber, Pale
Availability: 22oz bombers, Draft
