- Covered in the fine-laced hairs of a khaki-colored head lies this jet black, terribly handsome stout.
A tangle of Belgian yeast dominates the nose, intertwining fruity esters and restrained phenolics. Mere whiskers of hop bitterness balance assertive roasted malt character. Its thick body and wooly mouthfeel warm the cheeks with substantial alcohol. Moderate effervescence combs through an oaky finish for a dense, distinguished, well-groomed pint.

- 5.0 / 5.04 Reviewsalways a winnerThis is my third time making this kit. Always comes out great. Complex flavors, thanks to the malts, Belgian yeasts, and the oak chips. Perfect brew for winter sipping (and some of the cost goes to a good cause).December 29, 2015Great StoutThis beer is phenomenal! Great aroma, color and taste. Would not hesitate to brew this one again!January 22, 2016Delicious!I will definitely grab another kit if they sell these again this year. This was my 2nd kit from Northern, and I'm very impressed. The smell is amazing but the taste throws you off - which is still delicious, just not what you'd expect from the scent. Next time, I'm going to try soaking the oak chips in whiskey for 2 weeks before adding them in secondary to give it more of a whiskey barrel aged sort of flavor.September 13, 2015
- Browse 3 questions Browse 3 questions and 12 answersDoes this take more time to bottle condition?BEST ANSWER: I've made two batches of the Belgian Stout. In both cases I added a pound of Belgian Candi Syrup. I let them sit in secondary for between six & seven months and they ended up with an abv between 10 & 11 per cent. With a high alcohol content and an extended secondary I felt that I would need to supplement the original yeast.
When I bottled I added four ounces of dextrose and a pack of CBC-1 yeast. With this, the stout carbed up in two to three weeks. If you have a fairly high alcohol beer and/or a long secondary, it may take quite a while to bottle condition. I am finding that letting it sit in the bottle also leads to an improved flavor, but it was still good after a few weeks.What is the FG of this beer?BEST ANSWER: nov. 2015, I brewed this kit, S.G. before yeast addition was 1.082. used WYeast. I've yet to brew a batch from Northern Brewer that has not been consumed to the last drop!Is the beer acceptable to put into the keg system for carbonation instead of bottle conditioning?BEST ANSWER: Hello Alex
This beer can most definitely be kegged instead of bottle conditioned.
