American Stout |  6.80% ABV

Availability: Fall

Notes/Commercial Description:
This is an American style stout that has sweet malt flavors of caramel and chocolate, complimented by a crisp bitterness produced by roasted barley and American Hops. The complex malt bill of pale and roasted malts result in this well balanced stout that is smooth, rich, dark and delicious! And watch out – ABV 6.8%!

Can from trade as an extra. Forget who. Thanks! Pours dark brown to black with a big mocha colored creamy head. Nice aroma of roasted malts, smoke, bittersweet chocolate. Flavor is metallic up front big time, followed by roasted malt, bitter cocoa powder, maybe a hint of coffee or espresso. A long finish with some pleasant roast lingering with chocolate on the palate. Light to medium bodied for a stout, high carbonation. The big metallic flavor to start this one off really takes away from it, as it is an otherwise very solid dry stout with lots of flavor going on.
