Could be this brewery’s best beer...... although War Lord is also excellent. Love the smoky chocolate interplay, much more flavors than any Guinness I’ve had for sure - more than I can identify, really. This is my favorite VT stout so far.

perfectly presented (ON SPECIAL!) at the Ratttle and Hum New York City. This brew is creamy with a pronounced hop profile of flower and pine. Dark and delicious it is yeasty almost bready and a pleasure to enjoy even in moderate temperature. Adequate flavors of malt and cocoa not too sweet but well balanced indeed with a maple molasses caramel flavor with some vanilla. Talk about bang for your buck?
