Mammoth Extra Stout brewed by the Midnight Sun Brewing - Anchorage, AK


Mammoth Extra Stout brewed by the Midnight Sun Brewing Company - Anchorage, AK

Dark and full-bodied, Mammoth Extra Stout provides a cozy blanket of warm and fuzzy flavors, including chocolate, caramel, coffee and nut. Huge portions of pale and specialty malts give this mammoth brew a complex palate while hops provide well-rounded balance.
      

         
Any time of year, pair the robust flavors of Mammoth Extra Stout with slow-roasted, caramelized meats and vegetables. Or contrast the deep dark roast flavors of this wonderful brew with silky soups; creamy pasta dishes, cheesecake or crème brulee; or berry fruits, compotes and sauces.  
    

    
Review by Beer Advocate
Appearance: Dark black body and a brown fluffy head. Very textured look that poured on the thick side. The bottle art is pretty sweet too.

Smell: Syrupy milk chocolate, light oak, mild whisky barrels, and roasted coffee textures round out the dominant aromas. Kind of a damp and dark roasted smell. Maybe a touch milky with faint sweetness.

Taste: Huge dark roasted backbone to this beer. Smoke and char shine (especially when warm) a bit over the richness of the roasted body. Mild wood, bitter chocolate, and maybe a hint of booze in the finish. Small vanilla in there for good measure. Makeup is mostly awesome dry roasted flavors, bitter chocolate nibs, and a slight milky sweetness all packed atop roasted coffee.

Mouthfeel: A bit dry on the tongue in the aftertaste, lightly charred and gritty. Very reminiscent of coffee with that burnt, roasted mouthfeel. With that said, this is still a smoothly drinkable beer with a grainy/gritty base.

Overall: Fuzzy, big bodied, rich roasty notes, with lots of drinkability. The huge roasted coffee and bitter chocolate tones make this beer delectable. Paired nicely with truffles, helping enhance the subtle smokiness. Superb stout. Definitely seek this one out.

Midnight Sun Brewing Company
Since firing up its brew kettle in 1995, Midnight Sun Brewing Company has become a serious yet creative force on the American brewing front. From concept to glass, Midnight Sun relies on an "art marries science" approach, mixing tradition with innovation, to design and craft bold, distinctive beers for Alaska...and beyond.

We at Midnight Sun find inspiration in the untamed spirit and rugged beauty of the Last Frontier and develop unique beers with equally appealing names and labels. But the company’s true focus remains in its dedication to producing consistently high-quality beers that provide exciting flavor and satisfying refreshment in all seasons.

From our extreme Pacific Northwest locale, we offer our wonderful beers on draft and in 22-ounce bottles throughout Alaska. Some of these beers are also distributed in Washington, Idaho, Oregon and California. We invite you to visit our hardworking brewery and retail Loft in South Anchorage every chance you get!
