Truman’s second least popular Stout was X Export. Just 900 barrels were brewed in the 1855-56 season. Only Bottling, with just 850 barrels, was produced in smaller amounts.
It’s not a greatly dissimilar grist to Keeper’s. A tiny bit more brown malt and quite a bit more black. Not enough, mind, to make it very dark. It’s another Truman beer that’s rather on the pale side.
That total of 900 barrels all came from this brew. A decent-sized batch. Which might explain why there were four mashes. The last, as usual, just for a return wort.
No indication of where this might have been aged. I’m sure that it would have been aged for between six and twelve months.
One type of very fresh English hops, which would only have been harvested a month or two before.
