Formerly known as Martin House There Will Be Stout
That’s right, The Original Pretzel Stout. This 6.5% abv stout is as black as West Texas Intermediate and is brewed with over six pounds of crushed sourdough pretzels per barrel. Guess what? There’s no style guideline for this one. The salty fingerprint of the pretzels works with the sweet and roasty flavors of the chocolate malted & roasted barley to give this beer a flavor that is much greater than the sum of its parts.

Shared at Ale Alpharetta by Steve. Pitch black color, with a big, tan, and foamy head. Nose is lots of roast, a little salt, caramel, and toast. Sweet and fairly bitter. Medium to heavy body, sticky, and a little harsh. This is a strong and tasty stout.
