Don’t be afraid of the dark! We brew this smooth black ale in the tradition of Irish-Style Dry Stout. A Creamy, yet light-bodied beer, with a big roasted barley flavor.
Moon River earned four medals at the 2005 Georgia Craft Brew Challenge hosted by Georgians for World-Class Beer. On Nov. 5, more than 200 lucky people packed the Biergarten at Atlanta’s 5 Seasons Brewing Company to taste the best beers made in Georgia. During the blind judging session, judges evaluated 35 beers and deemed:

Theydon_Bois (14326) - Tourist Town (West), Berkshire, ENGLAND - OCT 12, 2015
Keg at the brew pub, 19/02/15. Light black with a tan covering, good lacing ensues. Nose is roast malt, spice, biscuit, raisens, light cocoa notes. Taste comprises bitter roast, earthy, dark fruit, trace of chocolate. Medium bodied, fine carbonation, semi drying close. Ok if a touch whelming.

DrSilverworm (9107) - Cincinnati, Ohio, USA - FEB 22, 2015
4oz on tap at the brewpub. Labeled 4.1%. Great espresso flavor to this. Mild, but it’s there, and nice. Not much else to it, though. Black color. Thin brown head. Dots and bits of lace. Decent retention. Moderate bitter taste, light to moderate sweet. Tastes light, like the others, but in this case it’s appropriate for the ABV. Lighter body. Light carbonation. Would be a great one to swig a pint of. I suppose thats what it made more.

GABF. Deep brown, almost black with a brown head. Dry and roasty, but not overly bitter or over roasted. Hints of cocoa nibs and maybe some espresso beans. Really tasty. Drinks bigger than its ABV

Nothing fancy, but it is a good basic dry stout. If you like the style you’ll like the beer.
