COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Brewed with homebrewer Ben Pugh as our Memphis entry into the Great American Beer Festival Pro / Am Competition. This beer will be judged and served at the GABF in Denver in September. The 87 IBU’s is close to, or exceeds, the theoretical limit for the absorbtion of hop bitterness. In other words, we probably couldn’t make this beer any more bitter.

[Tap] Pours an opaque black color with a thin brown head. Charred wood and malts in the nose along with a moderate amount of spicy hops. The taste is of dark malts, peppercorns, astringent hop bitterness and some cocoa. The palate was so-so, but it was a bit thin around the edges. Low carbonation level and lingering bitterness in the finish. Not sure about the ABV here, but it was well masked or quite low. I did enjoy this one.
