Brewed for the Swans show at the Tralf in Buffalo, NY on 7/26/13, More Information is a Summer Stout, a style that doesn’t really exist, but we think it describes this beer to a T. More Information is brewed with 25% Wheat - an ingredient typically used in much lighter beer styles. The wheat lends a crispness that keeps you coming back for more. The nose has some toffee & chocolate and some of that wheat pokes out as well. There is also a really dose of piney hops from the Centennials that we used towards the end of the boil. You get big roast character upon the first sip, but that is smoothed out by chocolate in the middle and then a nice, crisp piney bitterness at the finish.

Draught pints (many of them...) at the Swans show & a mini-growler enjoyed the next day. Full disclosure: I’m friends with the owner/brewer of CBW (rudolf here on RB), and it was his invitation that had me visiting Buffalo for the Swans concert. But even if I didn’t have that personal connection, this would still be an excellent beer. Colour is deep almost-black with blood red tones, and a medium sizes off-white head. Wonderful aroma with notes of dark cocoa powder, burnt toffee, toasted hazelnut, and a bit of dark smoke. Medium-light body - thanks to the wheat - making it very. VERY easy to drink. Flavour starts with a great dark, dry roastiness, followed by some sweetened coffee notes, a bit of dark chocolate, and finishing medium-long with pine and burnt wood. A fantastic beer all around, and a worthy tribute to the mighty Swans.
