COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Who knew a worldwide hop shortage in 2008 would give rise to such a memorable, delicious beer? When it came time to craft a commemorative offering for our 12th anniversary, we decided to trade in the bitterness of hops for the bitterness of unsweetened chocolate, and paired that with flaked oats. Featuring a thick, rich, roasty mouthfeel and chocolate-heavy flavors and aromas, this onyx-colored, malt-forward beauty became an instant classic that shares space on our liquid trophy case alongside our hop-focused fan favorites. Rebrewed for our 20th Anniversary Encore Series.

Hops: Summit, Willamette, Galena & Ahtanum

Pours almost black, elusive tan head. Aroma is coffee, wood, smoke and dark chocolate. Some dark fruits emerge on the tongue, raisin, cocoa powder, wood, roasted nuts... Very bitter finish, lingers, a tad chalky. Good.

trapped (3086) - New York, TURKEY - MAY 16, 2017
Draught @ Ted’s Corner Tavern. Inky black with small creamy tan head, mocha aroma with roasted malt, medium carbonation, medium bitter roasted malt and bitter chocolate taste, smooth but thin body, long bitter roasted malt finish. Very tasty but disappointingly thin for a stout.
