...flavor profiles for DuVig Beers...

Seasonal:  Oatmeal Stout  4.8 ABV

The Stout is often misunderstood because of the many versions of the style and its similarities with the Porter.  Throughout history, breweries have made sweet stouts (Milk Stouts) using lactose, a dry stout, and an Oatmeal Stout; which lands in the middle of the flavor profile.  The Stout is usually considered the first beer made from a grain bill that is used again to brew a Porter.  The DuVig Oatmeal Stout is an extremely complex beer brewed with various dark grains used in proportion to create a silky smooth experience. The chocolate taste comes from chocolate malt, the roasted taste comes from roasted barley, and the hints of caramel come from crystal or caramel malts. Typically, oatmeal stouts do not specifically taste of oats. However, the oats impart the well-known smoothness.  The DuVig’s Oatmeal Stout is not a heavy beer, but is flavorful and smooth with a nice dry finish.  Our Oatmeal Stout will deliver the most flavor when consumed at 48-52 degrees.

 

American Pale Ale:  4.8 ABV

This is a classic beer brewed to perfection.  All the flavors and sensations expected from an American Pale Ale are delivered in DuVig’s Pale Ale.  This beer is partially filtered with a pure white head.  DuVig’s Pale Ale has a wonderful bouquet of aromas and flavors.  Let the beer roll over your tongue for a few minutes and will taste citrus, mango, pineapple, grapefruit and many other flavors.  The flavors can actually change as the temperature of the beer changes.  DuVig’s Pale Ale is best enjoyed at 40-45 degrees.

 

English Brown Ale:  4.8 ABV

This beer is brewed to have hints of rose and chocolate.  These flavors come from dark roasted malts used sparingly to produce a Brown Ale with flavors such as carmel, toffee and biscuits.  The yeast used to ferment DuVig’s Brown Ale adds traces of fruity flavors and aromas such as plums, raisins, or ripe apples.  These rich, dark flavors are most apparent at 42-45 degrees.

 

Cream Ale:  4.9 ABV

The original cream ale was brewed to compete with the Pilsner during a time when it was difficult to cold ferment beers.  At DuVig, we brew our Cream Ale to have a slight malt flavor with a nice crispness that is accented with American hops added for flavor and aroma, not bitterness.  The hops used in the DuVig Cream Ale produce a harmony of flowers, fruit, earth and spice.  DuVig’s Cream Ale is a thirst quencher and is best served at cold temperatures (35-40 degrees).
