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

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

22 oz bomber pours a dark brown color with a medium tan head. Aromas of chocolate, light coffee, cereal. Full bodied, sweet. Interesting take on a stout.

bottle. small tan head. moderately sweet aroma with cinnamon. kind of thin bodied. cinnamon flavors over a mediocre stout. i think the honey dries it out too much and thins the body leaving a hot cinnamon flavor. lightly astringent.

Looks good, smells great.....than it goes downhill fast and in a hurry. Tastes like someone threw soggy teddy Graham's in a average stout and expected great things..... Horrible combo. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Black with a medium tan head. Sweet coco and graham cracker aroma to match the smooth flavor. Hints of vanilla ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

22oz bottle. Black pour. Aroma of cinnamon, brown sugar, crumbled graham crackers. Smells very much like a warm bowl of breakfast oatmeal. Tastes of sweet wort, graham cracker, hints of cinnamon & molasses. Medium-heavy bodied. Sticky mouthfeel, not a lingering flavor. Overall, the nose is the dominant character in this goodie! #represent30144 (4286)

Bomber. Big cinnamon aromas and flavors. Kind of dominant so you better like that kind of thing. The stout adds some body, chocolate flavors, and a touch of sweetness. Faint bit of roastiness in the aroma. Bittersweet on the finish as well. All in all the cinnamon is a bit dominant but an otherwise nice drink.

Had this on tap. I had a hard time picking up any flavors that resembled a graham cracker. The aroma lacked as well.

kinda dry and dusty, like its namesake, this one is meh but needs more depth.

On Draft at the brewery poured a dark brown color with aromas of chocolate, cinnamon, light roast and some earth. Flavors were the same not much graham cracker but a decent stout a little thin and light on the palate. I like my stouts thick and chewy.
