Shizuoka Craft Beer: Aoi Brewing-Slight Stout (July 2015 new version)

AOI BEER STAND has just started a new craft beer completely unannounced as it is a bit of a “revenge” craft beer version of a stout which never satisfied the master brewer’s exacting standards!

SN3O0226
SN3O0226

Slight Stout!
As it bears no special name, I called it (with Aoi Brewing’s agreement) “July 2015 New version”!

SN3O0227
SN3O0227

Served on tap
Barley and wheat, Maris Otter malt, Crystal malt, Low Step Valley malt, Australian Galaxy hop, Sylva hop, live yeast
Unfiltered
Alcohol/ABV: 5%
Bubbles: very fine bubbles. Long head, creamy, milk coffee color
Clarity: slightly smoky (normal considering live yeast and being unfiltered), very clean
Color: very dark brown
Aroma: very dry. Dry coffee beans, bread
Taste: very refreshing attack with plenty of pleasant acidity.
Complex. Coffee beans, dark caramel.
Lingers long enough for true tasting before departing on a gentler note.
Stays true to first impressions all the way through.
Varies little with food.

Overall: True stout and such an improvement on already excellent craft beer!
Aoi Brewing’s beers are definitely coming to maturity!
Should please both genders at all times of the day and year, but especially in late afternoons with food or on its own.
Would beautifully pair with meats, meats in sauce, sweet and sour pork!

Shizuoka Prefecture is one of the largest citruses-producing Prefectures in Japan and grows many local varieties.
One is called “Harumi Mikan” and is grown in Shimizu Ku, Shizuoka City!
Aoi Brewing could come up with this fruit beer thanks to the JA and Shizuoka Government cooperation.
It is a brew limited to 450 liters which necessitated the help of other brewers in Shizuoka Prefecture, a true local product!
Judging from the TV coverage and incredible popularity it will soon disappear, but hopefully it will become a regular annual feature!
