BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Carton Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States
cartonbrewing.com

Style: American Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 6.60%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
Simple truth is we wanted to make something taste like roses, and a stout reminiscent of the simple flavors of boxed chocolates seemed to make sense. The path became clear once we embraced honesty, no need for chocolate additions, just a malt bill built around chocolaty roasts.
After that it was just some roses on the way home. Drink Cupid because that’s all there was to it, really, we swear, a straightforward inkling for boxed chocolates and some roses Nothing else was going on.

Overall, a really solid stout with surprising floral notes. If you are looking for something chocolatey, you may leave disappointed. One of the better new, non-imperial stouts in years.

Black, thin looking, light tan head, great lacing. Soft floral chocolate aroma. Notes of over toasted crust, coffee, cocoa powder, flower, and earth. Thin, dry and drinkable. Reminds me of Valentine's , not my favorite holiday and not my favorite Carton beer.

Death & Roses. Guns & Roses. This is excellent take on Valentines day.
A) All head big and fluffy, with lasting lace shards over a black body. A for style.
S) Big, complex, varied, interesting take on chocolate & roses.
T) Follows smell, roses work, fruit doesnt. Go roses, go floral!
F) Not as full bodied or kissy, velvety as it could be.
Totally original. Must try.
