COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Named for the ridiculous 4 foot dirt pile we had to put our brewery on to get us out of the FEMA-designated 100 year floodplain (no-one can remember this part of Spearfish ever flooding). This robust porter is black in color, is medium-bodied and has a rich, roasted malt flavor ending with a pleasing hop flavor and mild hop bitterness.

Tasting at Bruce’s Pad. South Dakota tick! Thanks Ryan! Murky dark brown beer with a tidy pale tan head. Palate is light and crispy. Light and sweet dark malts with a little not so sweet chocolate. A little ripe orange. Light dry finish. Not bad.

yngwie (14146) - Kristiansand, NORWAY - FEB 14, 2014
Can, shared by Cunningham. It’s a clear reddish brown beer with a small light beige head. Roasted light alcoholic nose with coffee and a touch of dark bread. A bit alcoholic in the mouth, medium bodied and soft on the carbonation. Laying roasted finish with a certain warmth. Pleasant, but not very interesting. 140214
