Mystery Beer Reveal

When we ordered the keg of yesterday’s Mystery Beer we didn’t plan that it would be a Mystery. We just knew that it was a good stout and that we’d need one on tap once the Old Rasputin keg kicked (which it did yesterday). As we were checking in the keg though we realized we’d never had it on tap here at the Couch, so we thought “Why not make it a Mystery?”

From 75 miles away (as the crow flies), yesterday’s Mystery Beer was Stagecoach Stout from Figueroa Mountain Brewing in Buellton. From their website:

STAGECOACH STOUT
ABV 5.6% • IBU 17
STYLE
OATMEAL STOUT
INSPIRATION
As dark as Santa Ynez at midnight, with hints of chocolate, espresso and smoke. It is a full-bodied, intensely-rich ale with a velvety-smooth finish.
TASTING NOTES
Bursting with layers of dark caramel, chocolate, and roast malt flavors. The addition of oatmeal to the grist gives this brew a silky, satin mouthfeel and increased body. Jet black and opaque, our stout pours a dense, frothy, tan head that lingers as lace on a glass.

Come and enjoy a pint before it’s gone!
