American Double / Imperial Stout |  10.50% ABV

Availability: Rotating

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.

A: Pours black with a huge brown head.

S: Wow, mint and more mint with chocolate.

T: Sweetest beer I have ever tasted. Chocolate upfront followed quickly by mint and a hint of berry fruitiness.

M: lighter side of thick body with good carbonation. Slight chalkiness.

O: This is a dessert beer. Way too sweet for me.

Serving type: on-tap
