Crème Noir! What a fancy name! The inspiration to brew a full bodied, bittersweet, creamy, decadent beer came from our mother. And the inspiration to name it thus came right after having the first glass of it.
Our mother is not a beer drinker- in fact, she wasn’t too pleased with the idea of us starting a microbrewery in the first place.
The cream stout is Partha’s way of wooing her (and all the other folks out there who believe Beer = Bitter) into liking beer. She is a big fan of coffees and dark chocolates.
And this cream stout is just that- creamy, slightly sweet with hints of dark chocolate and coffee!
We have used this beer as a base style to brew many more versions of this stout- Noir Tangerine, a chocolate orange stout, Black Forest Stout and a Blueberry Stout.
