Earning 97 out of 100 points, this locally brewed stout won the rare platinum medal at the World Beer Championships in Chicago in December 1995. Beating such world class favorites as Guinness, Sierra Nevada, Shipyard's Bluefin and Murphy's Irish Stout, Bar Harbor Brewing's Cadillac Mtn. Stout was the surprise of the competition. Cadillac Mtn. Stout has come in first every year since 1995 and in 1999 was chosen one of the top 10 beers in America. Cadillac has earned the highest scores of any Maine microbrew so far, according to the Beverage Testing Institute.
Perfect with Caesar Salad, Pizza, Curry and Maine Lobster.
Abv varies from 6.3% to 6.7%.

Wonderful stout - could be a little richer, but it is worth the try. This is a very good winter beer - would be great with oysters.

Outstanding flavor. Head and body are thinner than Guiness. One of my favorite beers.

This stuff is fricken amazing. The taste is just unbelievable. This stuff, dare I say, is as good as guinness. It is definitely worth buying and it comes in 1pt 6 fl oz. bottles to boot. AWESOME. The description says it all.
