The Knecht Ruprecht series is a holiday inspired single batch.

Our first holiday ale is a Dark Chocolate Coffee Milk Stout. It uses Maris Otter as the base malt in combination with English hops and Extra Dark Cocoa. Post-fermentation, fresh cold pressed coffee from our local coffee roaster, Righteous Bros, was added and the brew was aged a bit. This beer is named after Santaís hit man. Pronounce it like this: Knecht Ruprecht.

Tasting notes: black as night with a chocolate colored head; nice malt body; strong roasty flavors from the cocoa and roasted barley. The Grinch has nothing on Knecht Ruprecht.

Nitro draft. Aroma is tough to get through the head. I smell some dark malt. Appearance is a pretty nitroed stout. Black with a tan head. Taste is a stout with some dark fruit. Palate is dry, almost tobacco like aftertaste. Overall, a decent stout. Would like more flavor. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

On tap at the Hay Merchant. A creamy, dark beige head sits on top of a black body. The aroma has bonfire and burnt notes at first, soon folllowed by coffee, some dark chocolate and blue plums. Mocha, dark chocolate, coffee, some bonfire and burnt malts and a nice hoppy bitterness in the flavor. Itís supersmooth and semi-sweet on the palate, with a full body. A beer that starts off surprisingly boring, but turns out b be really lovely and repeatable. 140515

Nitro pour at Nobi. Decent stout. One of those "I am glad I tried it but probably wonít have another" beers. The gals behind the bar at Nobi know their shit.

Nitro tap at whole foods in Katy. Very dark, near black, with a big beige head. Aroma of chocolate and roasted coffee. Mildly sweet and roasty flavored. Fluffy creamy body (nitro).
