Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: pwoody11 on 04-02-2011

Black & Red is a velvety smooth, dry-minted stout with a serious fruit problem! The huge portion of heavily roasted grains brings a dry, chocolatey character that contrasts Black & Red's sweet, fruity, full body.

As you tilt your glass, you'll notice that the black color you are perceiving is actually a very deep red and that the rich creamy foam has a tinge of pink to it. Black & Red starts off roasted and warming with a robust mintiness from 100 pounds of organic mint (from our friends at Washington's Green Grocer) added to the secondary fermentation and finishes out sweet and smooth.

Damn near undrinkable. Had this at a beer tasting dinner in DE- it was served with flourless chocolate cake and even that wasn't able to save this wreck.
