COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
One of our most anticipated and highly talked about specialty releases, This hearty dark ale is fermented with our rustic Belgian yeast strain which gives the beer a farmhouse tartness followed by big dark chocolate notes, and hints of black cherries. Fermentation temperatures often climb past 90°F which builds the distinctive flavors. No adjuncts are added to this beer-- these robust layers of flavor are yeast driven. Listen to the lunatic.

Can 1 pt. Pours black with a vague tint of red, hardly any head. Nose has roastiness, blood and a tart edge. Medium body, hardly any carbonation, roasty, metallic, balsamico and again this tart edge. Interesting idea to can a flat, sour black ale! 200713
