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.

Nice smooth beer. Very easy drinking for an imperial stout. Looks great in the glass. Even if you don't like graham crackers you should try it. But seriously , who doesn't like graham crackers? Right now, BHB beers are limited and hard to find so if you see one, get it. And for whatever reason if you don't like it, give the rest to me. - check out more at www.beeriam.com

Pours a dark brown with a tan head. Ok so this isnít the best beer on the planet. But how anyone could rate this below a 1 is confusing to me. Its roasty, odd cinnamon flavor, somewhat sweet. Its a fun idea but a bit messy, still its not awful.

I am shocked that this even considered a beer. My friend Chris though thinks that itís the sweet milk of a .... Well you get the point. I got this bad beer from my friend Chris. Not so liking and I will encourage him to use rate beer or other sources in the future to avoid not so good beer.

Pours barely translucent coffee brown with a thick and persistent creamy tan head. Roast malt aroma has cocoa and molasses overtones - definitely some graham cracker in there. Notes of caramel, horehound and roast coffee peep through as well. Mouthfeel is fairly firm and fizzy, if not spectacular.

Draft sampled at Olympic. From notes. Well, they got the graham cracker part, but more like a chocolate graham cracker. Chocolate and cinnamon.
