This is one bad-ass beer! I always have a few on hand, cold and ready to go; it's my go-to.

The best thing about it? Uniqueness.

This beer blurs the lines between Brown Ale, Porter, and Black IPA.
This beer blurs the lines between bitter and sweet. A great balance.

When you drink it, your palate goes for a ride. First, the Cascade and Chinook hops find their way to your sensory, then, all of a sudden, the malts steal the show! 2-Row, Victory, Extra Special Brown, Pale Chocolate, Roasted Barley... wow. A bit of a fuller mouthfeel than most "brown ales", and a hoppy, coffee finish have you thinking it may almost be a Porter. But, wait, at first it tasted like a Black IPA... nah, these malts are dancing perfectly together... that's definitely one gnarly brown ale- a fitting name for a beer, eh?
