Pirate Life Stout

Pirate Life (AB InBev)

Released June 12th, 2017

It's taken until tinnie number eight (or seventh equal given it's released at the same time as the Mosaic IPA) for Pirate Life to put a beer that isn't hop forward into cans. Sure, there have been barrel aged beers, a porter and a Berliner Weisse released in bottle or on tap, but now winter 2017 sees Stout join a lineup previously reserved for a series of pales, IPAs and a golden ale. They've switched the focus to dark malts in typically unreserved fashion: inside the eye-catching 500ml mass of swirls is a beer to gird your loins for the cold months to come.

Just as their hoppy beers show a respect and talent for US inspired pales and IPAs, here they display a respect for traditional British stouts. This is a beer that couldn't be much further from the triglyceride troubling sweet stouts that, year in, year out, line the GABS container bars; instead, Pirate Life delivers an experience centred around roasted barley, bitter chocolate malts and woody, earthy English hops. Oats are there too to soften the body of a beer that, weighing in at a notch over 7 percent ABV, sits in dry export stout territory.
