COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Available October 1 - March 31. To commemorate the anniversary of our grand opening (12/4/98), we at Ithaca Beer brew up a special Stout each winter season. This rich, dark, and fulfilling ale has a big roasty flavor and hearty alcohol content, which we hope will nourish and warm you as you join us in this celebration. A meal in itself!

Black in colour, tan head which fades, but not too quickly. A nice roasted and burnt aroma. A medium-full bodied beer with spicy and burnt characteristics with a very full malt flavour. A bit stong, but a great overall beer!

i’m pretty impressed, especially having been less than blown away by most of ithaca’s bottled offerings. this, however, has a nice roasted nose, although it could be more noticeable, a rich malt flavor and a long-lasting aftertaste. very good.

VENOM (941) - Connecticut, USA - SEP 17, 2002
Dark chestnut with ruby hues. Small, foamy dark tan head. Easy going carbonation. Warm aroma of lactose, oats, roasted chocolate and flaked barley. Initially fluffy with a solid body beneath, quick hit of alcohol and a deep malt backbone. Medium thick body. Dry, roasted and full with rich malt flavors and alcohol esters. Hint of lactic sweetness and oat smoothness. Long roasted chocolate aftertaste. Finishes with peanuts, a touch of plum and a thick roasted barley note. This is outstanding and even more impressive knowing it’s probably from last years batch.
