Bottle-Conditioned American Style Stout
6.288% ABV and 40 IBU. Introduced in 2007, the 6288 Stout is our winter season specialty beer. It is a rather lengthy process to brew the 6288 Stout. It is brewed with 5 different malted barleys, using American and French hops. Keeping with the Tuckerman tradition, it is cold-conditioned, dry-hopped and bottle conditioned using the krausening process. The fermentation takes about two weeks, twice the time of our other beers and conditioning takes three months! It's worth the wait, as the extra time gives this special brew time to mellow, offering a very smooth dark, malty flavor.
The 6288 Stout is named for the elevation of New England's tallest peak, Mount Washington. Tuckerman Brewing Co. is a supporter of the Mount Washington Observatory and donates a portion of the proceeds from the sale of the Stout to the Observatory's weather and science exploration. The Stout made Beer Advocate's list of top stouts. The 6288 Stout is available in 4-packs and 24 bottle cases. Get it while it lasts!
