Mitchell's Backyard Brewery Mocha Stout 6pc Pack

Drink on the Dark Side

An oat-sweet­ened ver­sion of stout beer with a medi­um-heavy taste and aro­ma, heav­ier on choco­late than cof­fee and tobac­co tones.

TAST­ING NOTES FROM THE CURATOR

The Mocha Stout from Mitchell’s Back­yard Brew­ery falls on the sweet­er, mel­low­er Amer­i­can side of the stout field. Oat-inclu­sive, this beer has a mel­low­ness and touch of sweet­ness to it. Like all stouts, it’s deeply dark, opaque even, with a thick, cream-like foam when poured from the bot­tle. Choco­late notes hit ear­ly on the palate, with the touch of roast­ed bar­ley last­ing through­out. Its bit­ter tones do not last long, mak­ing it ide­al for a long evening of drinking.

PAIR­INGS

This beer car­ries you through cheese plat­ters, meaty din­ners, and a heavy selec­tion of desserts. The sharp­er, aged cheeses go well with a stout, and the toast­ed malts of this brew make it a sur­pris­ing part­ner for deca­dent, salt­wa­ter-tinged fresh oys­ters. For your main course, your options range from hearty stews and smoky roasts or bar­be­cued meats. It goes with creamy mac n’ cheese as well as the Andalu­sian favorite, La Cat­e­dral de Navar­ra La Faba­da de Casa Ger­ar­do. And for dessert, this drink will take you through cof­fee cakes and tiramisu, pecan pies, and every­thing choco­late from souf­flĂ©s to rocky road ice cream.

A ROAST STRONGER THAN PORTER — WITH VARIANTS

The beer we now call the stout was once known as a stout porter, a stronger, heav­ier ver­sion of porter that was pop­u­lar­ized in the Indus­tri­al Rev­o­lu­tion by Guin­ness. Theirs is an Irish (Dry) stout, with raw, unmalt­ed bar­ley that lends a cof­fee-like bit­ter­ness and creamy mouthfeel. 

Of course, there are oth­er, more recent vari­ants — all of them at the tra­di­tion­al approx­i­mate 5%ABV mark­er. Sweet (milk) stouts tend to have faint traces of sug­ar to fight down the bit­ter­ness while oat­meal stouts have a nut­ti­er, lighter taste — and were once mar­ket­ed as healthy. Amer­i­can stouts are gen­er­al­ly con­sid­ered either sweet or oat­meal stouts or a com­bi­na­tion of both. And let’s not for­get about the Impe­r­i­al (Russ­ian) stout, that goes heav­ier on the hops, malt, and alco­hol con­tent (9%) than all the rest — and is a heavy com­peti­tor for the redou­bled roast­ed taste of slight­ly less high-alco­hol for­eign extra stout (7%).

Storage Instructions

Store beer bot­tles upright to pre­vent yeast rings from appear­ing. They must be kept in a cool, dark place at approx­i­mate­ly 13°C. Don’t allow beer to be caught in bright light for long peri­ods of time to pre­vent it from attain­ing a ​“skunky” taste. It is rec­om­mend­ed to place your beers in the chiller before serv­ing or drink­ing. These beers are best enjoyed cold. Con­sume with­in 6 months.
