Stone Brewing Co’s (Escondido, CA) Stochasticity Project is a select line of beers meant to focus on creation, and less on the brewery. Each release in the lineup is unique brewing experiment, a meld of styles, or new approaches to tried and true styles. Coming soon to the Stochasticity Series lineup – Master of Disguise Imperial Golden Stout.
What? Golden stout? Master of Disguise is a golden-brewed imperial stout, with coffee and cocoa. Confusing or inventive? That’s your call.
Things aren’t always what they seem, but not all deception is devious. Some illusions and misnomers lead to life’s most delightful surprises. Case in point—this beer, the yang to the yin that is the black India pale ale. Once revolutionary for its onyx appearance, it is now an accepted and beloved member of the India pale ale family tree. Thus we took the spirit of a dark beer—the time-honored stout—and applied a similar science of thought, brewing it to be golden-hued. That is what this experimental series and its latest creation are all about. Cocoa and coffee beans impart roastiness sans darkening to this brew, while flaked oats provide an enveloping mouthfeel. The result is a stout that looks more like a blonde, but is a raven beauty at heart.
Stone Stochasticity Master of Disguise will be available in 22oz bombers.
