COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
This traditional stout derives its rich flavor from highly roasted malted and unmalted barley. The gentle use of hops lets the complexities of the roasted flavor come through with a finish that suggests subtle notes of coffee and chocolate. Mountain Stout is brewed in the style of traditional Irish Stouts making it considerably stronger than the ones brewed today.

UPDATED: SEP 17, 2005 Another excellent live one! I am never let down by Franconia Notch and I just about shit my pants when I see what beers are rated above it on this site. But I suppose they cater to people of higher taste who are less inclined to give good scores. Anyway this is a great imperial stout with a thick tan head that laces beautifully down the glass riding on top of a dark brown almost opaque stout that lets just enough light through to show off it’s amber red tones. The aroma is of chocolate and sweet italian roast espresso with some slight toasted bread and rich malt notes. The flavor followed the aroma’s lead perfectly with a creamy mouthfeel to boot. I wish I could get this stout in Ohio. Perhaps someday.
