Following on from the success of their first nitrogenated (Nitro) canned beer earlier in the year, Mornington Peninsula Brewery has followed up with #tinnage006, Sacchariferous Stout on Nitro. Utilising nitrogen rather than carbon dioxide (CO2) to carbonate beer provides the beer with a creamier, smoother texture which complements this style of beer perfectly.
Sacchariferous Stout is a sweet/milk stout brewed using lactose in the brewing process, hence the name Sacchariferous, meaning containing sugar. The nitrogen dosing adds to the smooth mouthfeel of the beer, and at 4.6% ABV, it is a very approachable stout.
The brewing team at MPB have coined the phrase ‘vertically with enthusiasm’ to encourage customers not to dilly dally when pouring. Because nitrogen reacts differently than CO2 when the can is opened, it requires a vertical and unbridled transfer into the glass. Although this is counter-intuitive to the gentle style we are accustomed to, it provides the best taste and texture. If you are lucky enough to get your hands on this limited edition run, get ready to pour vertically and vigorously.
