COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Several years ago, these guys were kind enough to sell us their old brewhouse when they were upgrading to a new one and thus the story begins. These old converted dairy tanks had been used to make some award winning beers at Alesmith and now with us. AND what better way to honor these tanks than to brew a collaboration beer called Dairy Tank?? This delicious milk stout is sure to please and was brewed in the very brewhouse discussed above.

> A bitter, licorice and root beer non-sweet stout

>> Pours deep brown with rockier crema head. Nose is bitter chocolate, licorice, root beer/sarsaparilla. Taste is bitter, licorice, sarsaparilla, ash, dark cocoa mix. Not your typical sweet and milky gross stuff I was expecting.

>!< no dairy thankfully
