Schell's Stag Series - Barrel Aged Schmaltz's Alt
Coming off the success of our 150th Anniversary Draft Series, we are proud to
introduce the Schell’s Stag Series. Drawing upon our 150 years of brewing
knowledge, we are combining our experience, creativity, and curiosity with these
new brews. The Stag Series is collection of innovative and experimental,
limited-edition beers to be released periodically throughout the year.
For the Stag Series first release, we took our Schmaltz’s Alt and aged it for
six months in French-oak, Pinot Noir wine barrels. This beer is dark, ruby-brown
in color with a creamy tan head. It smells of dark cherries, vanilla and
chocolate. The taste has an initial, slightly tart, dark cherry flavor which
gives way to sweet malty chocolate body with a nice mellow vanilla oak flavor in
the background. This first release will only be available in 22oz bottles. Look
