Our first Stout was a success and the full-body, silky smooth flavor has a slight hint of chocolate right off the bat. We didn’t have a chance to nitro the beer as initially planned but it still came out with some amazing head retention. We wanted to honor the “Stout” women of Philly so were calling it Illy Stout: “Somewhat thick or of heavy build”. We defiantly plan on remaking this one and will likely add a little more sugar to boost the ABV past 5% but all in all we’re happy with the results. Happy brewing and cheers!
