Coal Hearted Killer

Brewed by Bad Tom Smith Brewing

Russian Imperial Stout11.9% ABV57 IBU

Independent Craft Brewer Seal

In the hills of Appalachia, miners excavated coal from the ground while Bad Tom put six men in it. Breathitt County has long been a part of coal country, and its residents certainly haven’t forgotten the atrocities committed by a certain cold-hearted killer. Therefore, we’ve brewed a beer as black as coal and as ruthless as the man himself.

Coal Hearted Killer Russian Imperial Stout pours thick and creamy – a pitch-black liquid loaded with rich fudge, chocolate, and roasted coffee. At 11.9% ABV, there can be no mercy. Be on the lookout – a killer is on the loose!
