Black Is the Color Of My Can

Thick is the froth that rises to its surface, and smooth is the taste of the stout that pours out. That’s right, Diesel stout will be available in cans starting next week.

It’s our second seasonal can release of the year, followed by the inaugural Autumnation for fall. As the leaves fade to black, you’ll be able to find four-packs of these 16-oz cans in grocery stores, delis, bars and restaurants in all markets where Sixpoint cans are sold. But we don’t intend to stop filling kegs of it this winter, either — soon, you’ll be able to score a pint of it on draft as well.

Diesel stout has actually been offered each winter since 2005, the year after Sixpoint was founded. Rich, robust and deep brown-black, this beer will linger in your mouth like a streak of tar. Yet it’s surprisingly sessionable and effervescent, too. It starts with nutty roasted malts, which get combined with Columbus and Northern Brewer hops. Another dose of Columbus in the dry-hopping stage gives it a defiantly hoppy character. Poured in a glass, the head becomes thick and cappuccino-like, with lacing down to the last sip.

“Diesel’s the quintessential super-hoppy American stout,” headbrewer Ian McConnell summarized.

“It’s always been my number one favorite Sixpoint beer,” said brewer Sean Redmond with affirmation.

We’re not kidding you, we truly love this beer. It’s made more than one Sixpoint staffer enjoy stouts for the first time as well. Cheers to a warm winter session at home with it soon.

Each bucket comes with 5 delicious beers that are specially designed for fire off those synapses which are directly responsible for your ability to recall facts that are of no use to anyone except people who want to win a tour of the Sixpoint Brewery!

    A monthly grand prize winner gets a private brewery tour (the team with the best cumulative monthly score wins!). For month of August, the July 28 trivia contest will be included.

    There will also be Weekly Sixpoint prizes and Berg'n gift cards! If this sounds like it will be too much fun, that's because it will be!
