Who says brewers can’t pluck your heartstrings? We’ll play right to your heart (and palatte and belly) by taking our already smooth and rich Double Brown Stout and taking it out to a night on the town. By adding real Red Tart and Dark Sweet Cherries at the beginning of fermentation and (Organic/Fair Trade) cocoa nibs at the end of conditioning, once a year we treat out Double Brown Stout lavishly. Don’t be a selfish lover, share this with someone special.

RollinHard (1024) - Fort Worth, Texas, USA - FEB 14, 2013
Growler from Brewed in Fort Worth. Pours dark brown with a small, beige head. Aroma of earth, dark rye bread, slight cherry, dark chocolate, coffee, and toasted nuts. The aroma implies dessert, but this beer is NOT sweet. Flavors of coffee, toast, earth, and slight bittersweet chocolate make appearance. Finishes with a slight cherry hint and an aftertaste that is bitter and earthy, yet slight astringent from the cherries. Begs for a sip of water after a while. Medium-heavy bodied, moderate carbonation, no real alcohol presence. Interesting beer, but I wish the aftertaste was better.

Pours a near black with some ruby shining through it when held up to the sunlight. There is a one-finger tan head that had great retention and left good lacing around the glass. The aroma is cherry chocolate candy bar, cocoa powder, extremely sweet, sugary, but mostly just a mixture of chocolate and cherry. The taste is bitter chocolate/cherry. You do pick up on the alcohol as well even while it was still really cold. The mouthfeel seems light to medium and the drinkability is low in my opinion.

Pours a dark brown color with a foamy canvas colored head. Overwhelming notes of cherry tootsie roll suckers. Nice smooth mouthfeel and long finish.

Pours black with a ring of off white head. Nice cherry aroma with a tiny bit of some roasted stuff as well. Taste is sweet first with some background cherry fruit and a hint of roasted flavor. Thick with a bit of carbonation. The flavor is a bit muted.

On draft. Poured a dark brown with a thin tan head and some nice lacing. Taste of chocolate, roasted malts, and a faint dark fruit finish. High carbonation, medium body. This is one of my favorite Baltic porters.

I lived in Japan for a couple years. In the first month I was there I heard a truck go by playing what could only be ice cream jingle music. I hastily put on some shoes, bolted out the door and sprinted down the block while people looked at me like I was crazy. I finally caught up to the truck, all out of breath and sweaty and there were no pictures of ice cream anywhere on it and I could barely speak Japanese and couldn’t order. Finally someone who was standing by laughing at me explained that the truck sold kerosene. What kind of sick monsters have a truck that goes around playing music and selling kerosene? DO they want their children to explode. It was the saddest walk home ever.

Pours a dark brown color with off-white head. Cherry, chocolate, roasted malt, and some nuts on the nose; follows onto the palate. Finishes with a sweet and tart cherry flavor.

RSRIZZO (1882) - Colorado Springs, Colorado, USA - MAY 2, 2014
22oz bottle poured into a Snifter at 41°. Color is black with good carbonation and a thick rocky brown head. Aroma is a deep roasted malt scent with just a faint note of fruit on the back end. It has a medium body with a smooth mouth feel. Flavor of deep roasted coffee that gives a hint of dark chocolate then some dried fruit. As the after taste rolls in the roasted flavors give a mellow bitterness and just a touch of cheery. As it warms a bit the cheery seems to show a little more bring out some sweetness. Overall its a very tasty brew and is well balanced, I just thought the cherry would standout a little more.
