Notes/Commercial Description:
We love this beer here at the brewery, and think you will have one of those “I’ve never-tasted-a-beer-like-that” kind of moments when you try it!

What we really like about this beer is the smoothness that brewing with cream sugar brings to the palate. This smoothness balances out the copious quantities of roasted barley used in the brewing process to create a rich, complex, and delicious beer. If you have not been a stout drinker in the past, give this beer a try. It might just change your mind about how dark beers should taste. It tastes so rich, but is surprisingly easy to drink!

A: Beautiful dark chocolate, can't see through the glass. Caramel head dissipates quickly but leaves a nice caramel ring around the glass and stirs up a thin head when agitated. BEAUTIFUL

S: Oatmeal, chocolate, small vanilla bean, Fennel

M: Way too carbonated for me, drinks like soda and reminds me of a redbull, too bubbly, takes away from the taste of the beer and really ruins it for me. Light to medium bodied as well, again just ruins this beer.

T: Oatmeal, small amount of bitter, molasses, dark dark chocolate

O: I'm very disappointed in this beer, and it all is from the mouthfeel. It drinks like a soda, just way too carbonated and light, I wouldn't get this again unless it was on a nitro tap

This beer I bought in cans and poured into a frozen mug. Could hardly see any light through the mug pretty dark color, It smelled pleasant. It had a medium texture in the mouth for a stout beer. lots of flavor as soon as it hit my tongue chocolate, coffee, and malty. But didn't leave any strong aftertaste. Overall this is one of the best balance dark beers I've ever drank. Can't wait to get more of these.
