COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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.

PapaSkeetSkeet (999) - Providence, Rhode Island, USA - MAR 29, 2015
Dark brown with 5mm of medium-fine light-brown head. Aroma is dry wheat bread with light, earthy coffee, slightly chalky, hints of oatmeal cookie. Body is medium weight, syrupy-starchy and lightly gritty. Carbonation is moderately coarse and moderate-light burn. Flavor is a dry, chalky oat and coffee, some old aged grass and light/clean herbal bitterness. Pretty yummy. Probably has a lot of elements of their milk stout with the lactose removed.

Bottle at Winking Lizard. The beer pours brown-black with a medium foamy tan head that recedes steadily to a wispy film. Stringy lacing on the glass. Roasted malt, hops and coffee in the nose. Medium body with flavors of roast malt, espresso and earthy hops. The finish is roasty with a dark chocolate and malt aftertaste. Above average overall.

fidelis83 (2125) - Clinton, Iowa, USA - MAR 3, 2015
Black pour with a two finger, creamy light brown head that has great retention and leaves decent lacing. Aroma is roast, roasted nuts, sweet berries, earth, char, a little pine, campfire smoke, dark fruit and grass. Flavor is roast, burnt sugar, pine, lots of char, a little licorice, lots of dark fruit, some vinous notes, earth and smoke. Medium to heavy body, creamy entry, creamy to chalky middle, medium carbonation and dry, but still slightly creamy finish. Really tasty, complex stuff.
