COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
It's nice to be able to finally brew some beer without restrictions on it. we came from Colorado where we could brew or try anything. We've been waiting 7 years to make a stout and we harnessed all that frustration into this batch of beer.

We didn't get caught up in the parameters of a specific style we just brewed a big fat hoppy beautiful beer. The timing of the law change couldn't have been better for us, because it has taken until this summer for us to get set up in our new brewery. We finally have some capacity to experiment with some new style. This could lead into a seasonal offering from us in the future. For now we're just glad we can satisfy the demands of the folks who have been on us since day 1 to make a stout.

Malt: 70/80 crystal malt, chocolate malt, black malt, roasted malt

Hops: Centennial, Willamette and cascade - on the dry hop!

5/2/2010. On tap at the brewery. Dark brown color with a tan head. Malty aromas with chocolate, coffee and hops. Licorice flavors with bitter hops. Not bad at all.

DrunkSanta410 (176) - Georgia, USA - OCT 14, 2013
2013 vintage. Poured from a 22oz bottle into a snifter. Pours a dark brown with one finger of khaki head. Pours thinner than other imperial stouts that have a syrup-like consistency. Smells bland. Taste is similar, bland with a thin mouthfeel. Not impressed, much better imperial stout offerings out there.

Lemke10 (678) - Waukesha, Wisconsin, USA - AUG 20, 2013
This pours a dark brown/black color with a slight brown head. The aroma is slightly robust with a bit of hops as well. The taste is smooth and has reasonably good robust flavors. There are lots of toasted, roasted malts with hints of coffee and toffee. Leaves a slight bitter happy ending!

Bottle. Black in color with a toffee colored head. Very subtle hints of chocolate and coffee. Wonderful lingering aftertaste that really sticks with you

Bottle. Pours dark opaque black with a nice layer of toffee color head. Aroma of chocolate and coffee with a hint of dates/raisins. Taste of roasted malts, slightly nutty, with an undercurrent chocolate.

timfoolery (1123) - California, USA - JUL 11, 2013
2012 bottle from Justin. Aroma and flavor of chocolate malt and a load of lightly flavored hops. Not really bitter at all, but there's definitely a massive, bland hop character. Palate is extra clean. Good beer. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

AirForceHops (2709) - Epping, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2013
2012 vintage shared with Adam J. Pours deep black, thin tan head. Taste is real hoppy with roasted malt, licorice, dried tobacco, chocolate, and pine. Hops are old of course. Nice mouthfeel, creamy texture. Alcohol can’t be found. Lightly bitter lingering roasted finish. This brew is good but you have to ask yourself “What am I looking for in a stout?” This is better consumed real fresh rather than cellaring.

AdamJackson (2099) - Enfield, New Hampshire, USA - JUL 6, 2013
Pours like a porter, minimal head. nose is cigarette butts and chocolate ice cream. Taste is not bad. hint of licorice, lots of roast! tons and tons of roasted coffee taste. It’s a nice stout.
