We drew our inspiration from wood for this year's anniversary beer, its natural beauty as well as its building and lasting strength, provides layers in the depth of character in a concentric annual growth cycle. Color & Grain serves as an apt representation of our continued growth at our five year milestone.
Color & Grain: Oak & Chocolate is an Imperial Stout that presents with a deep impression of complex and layered chocolate. Best served at cellar temperatures to reveal all the details! Aromas of chocolate malt balls and bruleed sugar fill the glass. Luxuriously silky mouthfeel reminiscent of melted chocolate bars with an oak derived vanillin subtlety. The flavors continue to extend with subtle roasted malt, then dark, charred figs, dates, then finally with a rich molasses and dry, dark cacao. A minimal, balancing bitterness with subtle warming alcohol reveals a finish expressive, bright and fruity lightly roasted coffee notes. The palate ends with oak tannin structure. Share this stout as a deep, dark and decadent treat to commemorate your own milestone achievements!
