Coronado Brewing Company (Coronado, CA) has released Stupid Stout this week. The beer is a part of the Southern California brewer’s Crown Series.
Coronado Stupid Stout got started as an English stout in 2008, only to return as a “west coast recipe” in 2011.
The deep, dark, vicious brew stands up to other imperial stouts as well as the test of time, delivering, defined, robust, chocolaty, notes with hint of hop freshness. As this beer ages, those big flavors mellow, leaving behind a smooth, balanced sipper. It’s the perfect beer to warm up with as winter cold sets in, or as part of a vertical tasting session many years from now.
Coronado Stupid Stout will be available in 22oz bottles and draft in 13 states.
