Burnaby’s Steamworks brewing is expanding their Nitro series with a new take on a confounding beer they first released three years ago. Steamworks White Stout is back and has undergone the Nitro treatment for further amplification of its most stout like features.
Steamworks Nitro White Stout boasts a rich body with coffee and chocolate flavours yet pours a light cascading golden colour with a dense white head. The brew brings rich typical stout flavours and body imparted from oats and barley, but without the dark coloured, roasted malts traditionally used in a stout. Instead, these roasted notes come from aging the beer with cold brew coffee from Pallet Roasters and cacao beans from East Van Roasters. The result is a deliciously unexpected brew perfect for west coast winters.
The introduction of nitrogen into the white stout gives it a distinctly creamy mouthfeel and furthers the perplexing drinking experience. It also means a new product format, the Nitro White Stout will now be available in an intergalactic tall can. This Imbibable embodiment of an oxymoron will soon be available in private liquor stores across the province and is available today at Steamworks Brewery and Taproom in Burnaby and Gastown liquor store.
