Stouter Limits Imperial Stout launches this Saturday, April 2.
The year-long anniversary celebration continues at Reuben’s Brews. The Seattle brewery marks its tenth year by releasing a new, special beer each month. Collaboration with fellow brewers has always been an important part of the plan at Reuben’s Brews and the anniversary series follows suit — the brewery is teaming up with a different collab partner each month. (Learn all about the anniversary, the collab partners, and the beers here.)
This Saturday, April 2nd, Reuben’s Brews releases the fourth beer in the series: Stouter Limits, a 12.5 % ABV Imperial Stout brewed in collaboration with the Homebrewers Guild of Seattle Proper. Here are all the details straight from the brewery.
JOURNEY TO THE STOUTER LIMITS
LAUNCHING ON SATURDAY AT THE TAPROOM IN BALLARD
On Saturday, April 2, we’re releasing the fourth beer in our 10th Anniversary Collaborations Series with the great folks at the Homebrewers Guild of Seattle Proper. This is the homebrew club where our co-founder Adam Robbings cut his teeth, and a number of our recipes still date back to those heady days of old. By reuniting with the guild to brew an anniversary beer, we’d like to think that we’re making one small sip for our friends, and one giant treat for friendship everywhere.
STOUTER LIMITS is a massive 12.5% ABV imperial stout that required tons of malt to achieve its dark color, thick body, and full mouthfeel. In short, this is a rich beer that packs a wallop. On the nose, aromas of dark chocolate cherries, roast coffee, and licorice are joined by suggestions of herbal, woody hops and chocolate banana bread, while on the palate, notes of smoky pepper, light toffee, and caramel chase bigger flavors of sweet and spicy chocolate. (FYI, a barrel-aged version is also coming at the end of the year!)
Stouter Limits will be available at the Taproom in both cans and draft, and our Reuben’s Brews team will be on hand for a toast at 3pm, too. Note: This beer will see limited distribution, but as a special release, once it’s gone, it’s gone!
