COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
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:
• UK Ale Category: 3rd Place - The Bomb

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

jhp40219 (316) - Louisville, Kentucky, USA - JUL 8, 2014
On tap at the brewery. Pours black with a light tan head that leaves plenty of lacing. Aroma and taste of fresh roast coffee, milk chocolate, roasted caramel malts, slightly bitter earthy hops. Dry finish of coffee, chocolate, and caramel malts. Medium bodied, creamy texture, lively carbonation. One of the better Irish stouts I’ve ever had. Crisp and refreshing on a hot, humid Georgia day.

rondphoto (2204) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - JUL 7, 2014
On tap @ Moon River / Savannah GA --- Opaque dark brown, thick tan rim head, sheets of lace. Taste is bitter coffee/chocolate and roasted malt, in that order. It expands in the palate, but needs no further battering for balance. Already bitter enough. A lot of taste for 4.6abv.

LilBeerDoctor (3506) - Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, USA - APR 1, 2014
On tap at Moon River. Pours black with a thin light tan head. Aroma of roasted malt, dark chocolate, roasted nuts, peanut butter, roasted coffee. Mmm, great aroma. Flavor starts off with roasted/burnt malt with a finish of chocolate and roasted nuts, light coffee. Delicious dry stout! Great flavor profile with aroma slightly better than flavor. 8/4/7/4/14 (3.7/5)
