Notes/Commercial Description:
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.

so this is a very odd and interesting beer... I had a number of servings of it across 3 days.. the first one I though "wow, they will probably never release this because I can see a lot of people hating it".. but by about the 3rd snifter I loved it and was hoping they will bottle it.. you have to know you are getting into something unusual (but its dogfish, so come on)... a lot of it is standard double stout fare but the mint character is unique and gives it a very thin mint-esque quality.. the fruit adds to it a bit of a finish in flavor similar to what you find in olde school barleywine or 120 min ipa... overall its rather interesting and pretty awesome.. certainly unlike anything else.. definitely give it more than one try... basically the beer version of mint chocolate chip ice cream with fruit on top...

Serving type: on-tap
