2013 & 2010 Gold Medal Winner at the Great American Beer Festival in the Foreign Stout category.

That time of year when the day seems to fade away. Drifting further into the darkness with each passing day. Volume 1 - Foreign Stout - Pours black with licorice, espresso bean, molasses, and black cardamom notes that give way to a feeling of self loathing, burnt opportunities and smoked relationships.

"Life it seems will fade away/ drifting further every day" while drinking this junk. Or not. It is what it is and forever shall be. Its OK. But let’s not stop, drop & roll all over the floor like our collective heads caught on fire. Speaking of which, if I caught on fire and I had a gallon of water and a gallon of this stuff, and a gallon of Blatz, I would definitely pound the gallon of Blatz while delicately washing my scrotum with the water and throwing this stuff on the fire. No sense wasting water or Blatz on such things. That is how I roll, Or I could hand these out to unruly neighbors and scream at them to go piss up a rope.
