COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
To give this beer a wonderful roasted flavor, we added unmalted, very darkly roasted barley. The roasted barley is mixed with a generous portion of chocolate colored malt giving the Blast Furnace Stout a beautiful ruby hue.

We used our finest hops unsparingly to create a delicately balanced bitterness with a rich roastiness and fresh hop aroma. The East Kent Goldings hops were added with heavy hands at two different times. This unbridled addition grants a full hop flavor to our heavenly drink.

Editors note: This brewery uses Church Brew Blast Furnace Stout as a name for one of their beers (an oatmeal stout), but the name remains on the board at all times to signify that they always have a rotating stout which is not necessarily the BFS. Please check with your bartender to see which stout is currently on tap.

Pours a dark reddish-black with a spare off-white head. Mild aroma of oil and roasted malt -- it smells nice but its a little odd for a Stout. Flavour of roasted malt, chocolate, oatmeal and a touch of hops. Medium bodied.

On tap in a church. Mahogany pour, some white or off white head. Aroma is dense coffee grinds, hop, some spice, malt. Flavor is the same. Good bit of bitterness. Didnt think this was so sweet but just a really well balanced stout.

Tap at CBW, a dark stout, with a lighter body.. sweeter roast than traditional which makes perfect sense, was told this was their oatmeal stout by the server.
