What is a Blonde/Golden Stout?
A blonde stout seems like an oxymoron. A traditional American Stout is described as having an SRM of 39-40. The dark black colour of stouts comes from the roasted malt, which also gives stouts their roasted aroma and taste. Can a stout actually be blonde in colour? Yes, stouts can be brewed without the roasted malt. Brewers are using coffee and chocolate in their blonde (or golden) stouts to give the illusion of roasted grains so that the traditional roasted flavours are still present in the beer.
Here’s what Twin Sails Brewing had to say about their No Fun Zone Blonde Stout:
“A Blonde Stout?! How is that even possible? Well we’ve made it possible with this cool limited release beer. It is both a blonde and a stout which is pretty incredible and unusual, but sounds absolutely fantastic. Coming in with an ABV of 7%, this beer will definitely be a fan favourite and with flavor profiles like coffee, chocolate, coconut and vanilla, this just takes the cake.”
Dan Crocker was lucky to get a few beers that you can not find in Alberta. Twin Sails Brewing’s No Fun Zone out of Port Moody, BC is one of them. Let’s see if this special brew lives up to the excellent reputation.
