A Note on This Beer
The craft beer revolution in America has stolen a style from British brewing and made it more intense, cleaner and clearer than it’s ever been. Now, it’s one of the most popular styles of all.
No, it’s not an IPA, it’s an American Stout.
American Stouts maximize the dark coffee, chocolaty flavors of roasted malts, bringing them to fruition with a burst of American hops. Look to the genius of Sound Brewery, a nationally and internationally awarded artisan, to elevate this style to new level of intricate deliciousness.
Sound’s Ursus Americanus Stout dives deep toward the limits of darkness, pushing the malts just about as far as they’ll go before spontaneously catching fire like a torched marshmallow. It pulls back from the abyss, finishing supple and sessionable. Smooth and intense, Americanus is one of the best options for a dark roast fix.
Cinderous black with near total light absorption, Americanus blots out the glass. Aromas of espresso and 90% dark chocolate fuse together. Deceptive wood flavors make it seem as though it’s barrel aged with slight lactic sour tied to a sturdy grounding of burnt caramel. Slight hoppy resin brings out a savory toasted wood complexity. Even after you’ve set it down it leaves a mark on your tongue like the smoke from a campfire.
With Ursus Americanus, Sound produces a beer that matches the refinement of Deschutes Obsidian with hop complexity and balance, but then goes deeper and darker. Bold and uncompromising, Americanus might not be for everyone, but if you’re daring enough to try, it will make its own roasty spot in your heart.
