A lush dark beer brewed with Dutch bittersweet chocolate, this stout is a fearless blend of caramel, bittersweet chocolate, and black malt flavors. Moderate alcohol content and a a hint of oatmeal add to a creamy and balanced brew. The addition of nitro creates a velvety mouthfeel, making this a true stout lover’s delight.
The early brewers touted the health benefits of the milk sugar in this beer which today relates mainly to the increased amount of calories(no real health benefits…sorry). The milk sugar adds a well rounded sweetness to this dark beer and makes it an outstanding, year ‘round stout.
beer is a great example of how complex a single-hopped beer can be. Summit hops are extremely diverse containing flavors of grapefruit, pine, and sweet onion. Our brewers are careful to add the hops at specific times in the boil to bring out each unique flavor. What started as a challenge to make a “hop bomb” has turned into a hop-lover’s dream. Get this year-round beer on draft or in cans.
