Style: American Double / Imperial Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 9.00%

Notes / Commercial Description:
Named of the original name of the city of Kennesaw (our home town), Big Shanty is not a little beer by any means. Made with real graham cracker crumbs and honey, itʼs sweetness is only challenged by itʼs strong roast and hop bitterness. A world class stout with an extreme amount of local flavor.

I feel like I am drinking cinnamon teddy grahams in my stout.
The cinnamon and sweetness of the graham cracker are overpowering.
I was hoping the taste would grow on me but it did not. I think i would really like the stout without the cinnamon.

Solid. Just undone by some cheap vanilla and a slack feel.

On tap at the open house on 2/16.

Appearance: Pours a midnight black with a finger of a white head that dissipates quickly.

Smell: Smells of dark fruits, slight chocolate, and some graham cracker.

Taste - Taste mirrors the nose.

Mouthfeel: Thick mouthfeel. Alcohol is masked well.

Overall: More dark fruits than I was expecting and probably my least favorite of the day but I still liked it.

This beer is literally like drinking liquid cinnamon and nutmeg. And then its thin on top of that. Not impressed.
