Bad Tom Smith Black Kettle Chocolate Stout

Brewed by Bad Tom Smith Brewing

American Stout5.3% ABV23 IBU

Chief Black Kettle, peacemaker of the Southern Cheyenne in the mid-1800s, is remembered for both accepting treaties in order to protect his people and his efforts to resist American settlers from the Kansas and Colorado territories. That is, until he lost his life at the hands of General Custer’s troops during the Battle of Washita River. In his memory, we brewed our limited chocolate stout in our very own black kettles. Black Kettle Chocolate Stout is made with roasted barley and chocolate malt, as well as a heaping amount of cocoa powder, cocoa nibs, vanilla beans, and cinnamon sticks added to the kettle. It pours the color of onyx, and is topped with a fluffy, tan head. The aroma is reminiscent of roasted espresso beans and decedent chocolate, with a tinge of cinnamon spice. A throwback to our original recipe, Black Kettle Chocolate Stout leaves you in peace with a pleasant, lingering sweetness.

Flavor: Creamy milk chocolate, fudge, cinnamon spice, and a hint of vanilla.
Clarity: Pours opaque and onyx-black, with a silky, tan head.
Aroma: Decedent chocolates, roasted espresso beans, and cinnamon spice.

Food Pairing: Highlights the nuttiness and braised, caramelized integrity of dishes with brown, savory sauces; complements silky, salty foods like oysters on the half shell

Hops: Galena, Mount Hood, Hallertau

Grains/Adjuncts: Maris Otter, Munich 10L, Chocolate Malt, Carapils, Biscuit, De-Bittered Black Malt, Roasted Barley

Yeast: British Ale
