Brewer's Notes So Smooth, So Good

Prepare your palate to surrender to this two-fisted brew. Aromas of chocolate and dark fruit will initially assault your senses. Smooth and creamy with rich, complex flavors of dark dried fruits, licorice, and molasses. Our Head of Operations says this beer was the only thing that could refresh him after his epic days on the battlefield in the war for independence from Longshanks.

Our Process Open Fermentation

For a handful of our German-style beers, and all of our Belgian-style beers, we use open top fermenters. These fermenters aren't shaped like a traditional conical fermenter. They have a wider diameter with a saucer-shaped bottom and no top, leaving it open to the air. This shape puts less hydrostatic and barometric stress on the yeast. When specific strains of yeast are exposed to open air, they express a more intense range of esters and phenolics.
