Boundary – Export Stout
Founded by Matthew Dick and Matt Scrimgeour, Boundary is a cooperative brewery in Belfast – owned and operated by its members. Opening its doors in 2015 after raising over £100,000 through investments from its initial 447 members, it was the first brewery in Northern Ireland to bring together modern US styles with traditional Belgian and French style beers. The brewery has since raised more money and increased it membership to over 1,000 in order to increase capacity and install dedicated packaging equipment. Their initial range included a 3.5% American pale ale, a 7% IPA and this 7% Export Stout. The core range has since evolved and the brewery releases regular specials across a diverse set of styles.
This very dark, dry and decadent export stout is one to be savoured and enjoyed. Chocolate, caramel, coffee and dried fruit combine with the roasted biscuit-like malt bill to give a complex and smooth flavour. Also known as foreign extra stouts, historic versions of the style had the same OG as domestic extra stouts, but had a higher ABV because of a long secondary fermentation during which wild yeast strains would further ferment the beer.
Every effort is made to match the brewery recipe precisely, but at times it maybe necessary to change some of the listed ingredients on the recipe to alternatives due to seasonality or availability, but in all cases we do our best replace with something that won’t impact on the overall taste and flavour of the beer.
