Super Stronghold is an English Strong Ale, based upon the recipe for Stronghold Session Ale. It is a bigger, sweeter, and maltier version of its little brother--rich with chocolate, dark fruit, and burnt sugar flavors. A blend of American and British base malts serve as a foundation for the crystal malt, chocolate malt, and oats that provide this beer its malty character. All this malt is balanced with a combination of Magnum, Willamette, Sterling, and Northern Brewer hops.
Super Stronghold is a big beer that demands bold flavors in a food pairing. Try it with briny kalmata olives and a creamy, sharp cheese like sheep's milk feta, or combine it with a little coffee ice cream to make a Super Stronghold float for dessert.
