In this winter beer blog, we are going to get into the first stout from Shiner Brewery. It is their #106 Birthday Beer and it is called Birthday Beer Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on their beers, you know the history of this Texas craft brewery. If you have not, please, read them to get to know Shiner. Let us get into this stout.
It has a jet black color with a tan constant head. The smell has a heavy chocolate notes. It also has a fresh chocolate cake notes. The taste has a sweet to heavy chocolate notes with a dry cocoa chocolate aftertaste. It is a nice sipping beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Happy Beer-Day to Shiner!
To celebrate the 106th birthday of the “Little Brewery” in Shiner, we crafted this special limited-edition brew that’s a sweet treat for all. Brewed with chocolate malt and real cocoa, this year’s Shiner Birthday Beer is a delicious stout with a soft creamy head, chocolate aroma and taste and a slightly sweet finish. Drink this beer that’s as rich as Shiner’s heritage while it lasts – once it’s gone, you’ll have to wait until next year for another birthday surprise!
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
In closing, I am very proud of Shiner Brewery. When I was down there, they were getting ready to open their Ale Brew House. This brewery has come a long way in 100 years. Happy Birthday, Shiner! This is their first stout and their new winter seasonal. I will have to say it is not disappointing. I love it. It is like a chocolate cake taste but in liquid form. It has a nice aroma and taste profile. There is nothing more to say but this is an awesome beer. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
