Black Friday Celebration of Black Beer.
Beer will all be tapped when we open on Black Friday at 11am. Below is the list of beers and their description. This will be way more fun then shopping!
2SP (PA) The Russian: Russian Imperial Stout 9% ABV
One of his most acclaimed beers, that has won 10 GABF Medals and 5 World Beer Cups is his Russian Imperial Stout. At 2SP he has updated the recipe and created “The Russian,” and we are floored. This 9% beer is balanced, big, and without a doubt, can be considered the standard for the style.
Alesmith (CA) Speedway Stout: American Imperial Stout 12%ABV
Jet Black, with an off-white head. Starts with a strong coffee and dark chocolate sensation, then fades to a multitude of toasty, roasty and caramel malt flavors. Clean and crisp, full- bodied. Warmth from the high alcohol content lightens up the feel. You won't fool your taste buds - this beer is HUGE!
Alesmith (CA) Vietnamese Coffee Speedway Stout: American Imperial Stout 12%ABV
This Vietnamese coffee version of Speedway Stout is and continues to be AleSmith's most popular variation of the ever-growing Speedway Stout collection. Since 2012 we have been adding this blend of four Vietnamese coffees, known in Vietnam as cà phê sa đá, to our popular imperial stout. The coffee beans were slowly roasted at low temperatures and then brewed by AleSmith with a traditional phin-style filter that gently percolates water through the ground coffee. The result is an intensely aromatic and bold tasting coffee that complements the notes of chocolate and roast in this massive stout.
Bells (MI) Arabicadabra: Coffee Milk Stout 5.5%
Coffee Milk Stout. Brewed with 100% Arabica coffee beans roasted by Ferris Coffee in Grand Rapids, Michigan. Bright, fresh coffee, chocolate, roast, full bodied and made with lactose.
Sierra Nevada (CA) Narwahl: Russian Imperial Stout 10.2%
A malt-forward monster, highlighting the depths of malt flavor. Narwhal Imperial Stout is inspired by the mysterious creature that thrives in the deepest fathoms of the frigid Arctic Ocean. Featuring incredible depth of malt flavor, rich with notes of espresso, baker’s cocoa, roasted grain and a light hint of smoke, Narwhal is a massive malt-forward monster. Aggressive but refined with a velvety smooth body and decadent finish, Narwhal will age in the bottle for years to come.
Left Hand Brewing (CO) Fade to Black: 8.5% ABV
Volume 1 - Foreign Stout - Pours black with licorice, espresso bean, molasses, and black cardamom notes that give way to a feeling of self loathing, burnt opportunities and smoked relationships. 2010 Gold Medal Winner at the Great American Beer Festival in the Foreign Stout category.
Adroit Theory (VA) The Devil made me do it - Vanilla Beer and Bourbon Barrel aged Maple Syrup: Imperial Porter 7.5% ABV
Gacy. Manson. Dahmer. Inspiration for our smoked porter aged on Serano peppers. The peppers at a touch of fire; the smoke malt a touch of brimstone. Were they victims of their environment? Or did the devil make them?
Roasty maltiness is followed by smoky elements and back of the throat, full bodied.
Ballst Point (CA) Victory at Sea: Imperial Porter 10% ABV
Our Victory at Sea Imperial Porter is a bold, smooth brew with just the right amount of sweetness. We infused this robust porter with whole vanilla beans and San Diego’s own Caffe Calabria coffee beans. The subtle roasted notes and minimal acidity of the cold brewed coffee, balances perfectly with the sweet caramel undertones of the malt, creating a winning combination for your palate.
Bells (MI) Expedition Stout: Russian Imperial Stout 10.50%
Expedition Stout offers immensely complex flavors crafted specifically with vintage aging in mind, as its profile will continue to mature and develop over the years. A huge malt body is matched to a heady blend of chocolate, dark fruits, and other aromas. Intensely bitter in its early months, the flavors will slowly meld and grow in depth as the beer ages.
Brewdog (Scotland) Jet Black: Nitro - Oatmeal Milk Stout 4.7%
Flaked oats and wheat add to the velvet mouth-feel, with the carbonation adding a honeycomb texture. Magnum and Sorachi Ace bring a berry & citrus fruitiness that amplifies the chocolate character of this inky leviathan.
