Notes/Commercial Description:
A tribute to the Southern tradition of an RC Cola and a MoonPie. We brew this beer with biscuity malts, vanilla, and chocolate nibs from Raleigh's own Escazu Artisan Chocolates. But instead of using a traditional, dry English or Scottish ale yeast, we get zany and brew with a German (Weihenstephan) yeast strain. This lightens up the beer and adds vanilla and banana notes to give it that MoonPie connection. The result is a drinkable "dark ale" that, like most of our plow-to-pint beers, doesn't fit neatly into any one particular style. Have your three martinis, Boss Man. We'll take a Working Man's Lunch.

Poured from a bomber into a shaker pint, the beer is a dark, vibrant, mahogany highlighted brown coloring with a foamy, dense, cream colored, one inch head. Aromas of roasted and tangy sweet nut, hints of milk chocolate, and candy sugar. Flavors are heavily roasted forward, with a tangy blend of nut and milk chocolate sweetness. Banana and cream sweetness blend into the palate, as well. Very light and sweet, but smooth bodied and highly drinkable. The roast character kicks up a bit in the aftertaste, cleaning up the overly sweet palate a bit. Nut sweetness dominates the aftertaste. The finish is smooth, light, and slightly frothy at the very end. Decent brew.
