COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Barley, wheat, rye and oats provide the foundation for this big stout. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, creme brulee. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish. Such a robust beer stands well by itself, but also makes a wonderful end-note to any rich, indulgent meal. Discover the secret of combining this roasty ale to sweets, by pairing with dark chocolate or caramel, or even by pouring it over ice cream.

Dark brown pour with a tan head. Aroma is roasted malt, dark fruit, chocolate, coffee, soy sauce. Flavor has kind if an umami savoriness to it. I've had other beers that get soy sauce notes like this and I'd really like to know what causes it. Oxidation? Ok stout.
