Red Dawn hits shelves this past week and marks the 10th beer released by the Newport Storm Brewery in 2015.
A Russian Imperial Stout, Red Dawn is available in 4-packs for a suggested retail price of $9.99.
Traditionally, Russian Imperial Stouts are known for their malt complexities that can take on slight burnt tones reminiscent of black coffee. With Red Dawn, brewers wanted to go to the extreme with the roast profile, the company said, and added ample amounts of Canada Pale and Castle Special B Malt.
Flaked barley and oats were also added to balance the full-bodied flavors for a smooth finish, the company says.
This brew pours with a deep tan head and velvety chestnut body. At 9% ABV, Brew Master Derek notes, “this beer comes in a 4 pack for a reason, so be sure to sip and savor it’s choco-nutty goodness!”
