Steamboat....The legendary horse of Wyoming and a symbol of the western Spirit. The horse that dared cowboys to try and stay on.

When naming a beer after a legend, it canít be just any beer, it needs to capture the same spirit as Steamboat...that "I DARE YOU" attitude. This beer also needs to be special, not mass produced, which is why we have decided once again to only brew up 400-22oz bottles for 2013, making this beer truly the rarest beer in the west.

This monster of a beer is thick, lightly carbonated, rich and smooth as velvet, but under that pleasant mouth watering flavor lurks a beast that has just been set free. We brew this bad boy with an insane amount of grains, honey, molasses, whole vanilla beans and then to top it off we age it in a whiskey barrel to lend that slight warming sensation and smooth taste, but do not let that feeling of ecstasy fool you...Steamboat comes in at 13% Alc/Vol..so take it easy or just like itís namesake did to countless cowboys, you will hit the ground!

Steamboat day is a celebration of that western spirit. Make sure you have plans to come out and have a little fun, and if you are not a stout drinker, donít worry we will have plenty of other mouth watering beers for you plus bands and food.

scooterbub (1027) - Lander, Wyoming, USA - DEC 25, 2013
650ml bottle. Bottle # 381/400 Pours a dark black with a reddish-brown hue and a two inch tan head that slowly collapses. Taste is of roasted malt, smoke, coffee, toffee, wood, vanilla, cocoa, chocolate and caramel. Similar aroma. Has a full body with a dry and bitter finish. Easy to drink, enjoyable and quite pleasant.

Bill Becker (807) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - JUN 11, 2013
2013 edition, bottle number 336 of 400, $16.19, 22oz, black wax. A- it pours black with a 1 finger head of tannish foam, good lacing. A- very roasty, notes of chocolate, vanilla, some booze from the Whiskey barreling. T- itís very hot. I get a ton of roasted malt, bitter chocolate, vanilla in the background, light notes of Whiskey. P- on the light side of medium bodied, lightish carbonation, not the greatest mouthfeel. O- like I said, very hot and not all that good tasting. I wonder what some cellaring would do but the carbo is already light. I canít give it a hearty recommendation.

magsinva (1105) - Virginia, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle split with DiarmaidBHK - pours pitch with a finger of khaki foam, nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is malty with some chocolate bourbon goodness. Taste is bittersweet with slightly bitter/dry finish. Solid effort.

DiarmaidBHK (4189) - Lewisburg, Pennsylvania, USA - MAR 16, 2013
Bottle from brewpub. Pours dark brown with an inch of khaki foam. Bits of malt on the nose. Lots of roasted malt and a hint of bourbon on the tongue. Finishes clean. Not bad.

This beer was really good it was smooth and had a real nice creamy head. Freedoms edge is getting better and better with their beers.
