Background and objectives

The Kissmeyer Garage series is meant to be a ‘no-nonsense’ take on the best, traditional beer styles. ‘The best’ according, of course, to my own preferences and the interpretations of these styles in the Garage series are on one hand in full respect of their heritage and virtues, but at the same time with that little personal twist that make them stand out from the rest. My aim has been to make very accessible versions of the styles, as that is the way I like them, and a harmonious balance between the malts and the hops, accentuating fruity and aromatic aromas and flavours. Eagle Kiss is my first take on the classical American Stout style. A very robust beer with assertive and rich roast malt character. Rather dry and drinkable for style with lots of fruity aroma hops and a very bold, but balanced bitterness.

Appearance

Intensely black colour, rich, lasting dark cream-coloured head.

Aroma

Assertive roasted malt, chocolate, licorice and coffee, lots of fruity and floral hop aromas.

Taste

Very dry, intensily roasted, full bodied, fruity hoppy and markedly, but smoothly bitter, long roasty/hoppy and spicy aftertaste.

Mouth feel

Full body, but dry for style.

food matching

Rich beef stews, game, raw oysters, burgers and hard, strong cheeses.

Overall

An intense, full bodied and assertively roasty stout with rich hop aromas and flavors, balancing the malt characters. Rich in all aspects, but still a smooth drinking beer, though not recommended for session drinking!
