Omg!! Tried @pouritblack festival, really impressive , well balanced between oak aged and fresh stout. It’s amazingly flavoured, vanilla, chocolate, cherry and wood create a perfect combination and make this beer unique!

"A great beer from GF... Probably my favorite they put out. Already love the double stout, and the barrel treatment is not overdone and does nothing but imprOve on and smooth out the beer."
