COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
A beast of a brew. This dark, rich hearty ale is made with shiitake mushrooms, adding umami soaked earthiness unique to this beer. Brewed with a balanced blend of roasted barley and oats, the mouthfeel is truly narrative. Both complex and straight-forward, this ale is equally at home with a hearty fresh off the grill steak or a late night game of poker.

I am not a fan of mushrooms so I was scared about this one. Turns out to be really good! Pours a hazy brown. Porter notes added to by a musty, earthy flavor. Would go really well with food.

Bomber. Clear and dark, the body sports a reddish chestnut tint with a thin, dissipating cap of khaki foam. The head leaves virtually no lacing behind. Aromas are weird and seemingly off, showing hints of citrusy tartness amidst a base of dry cocoa, caramel sugar, stewed mushrooms, and earthy dirt. Flavors follow suit, dry and chocolaty, touching on caramel and riddled with this strange, earthy, dirty mushroom component. Again, an odd, almost lemony tartness seems entirely misplaced. Sporting soft but lively carbonation, the palate starts out creamy but quickly moves on to a chalky, powdery, dry finish. A hint of tobacco comes through at the very end. This one is as odd as they come, and not in a good way.
