Alcohol: 8.1%

IBU's: 75+

Availability: Limited seasonal distribution on the West Coast and in some national markets beginning April 1st.

General Background: Co. HQ in Cloverdale, but their brewpub is in Healdsburg.


Appearance: “Black”

Aroma: “Too many smells coming from food cooking in the (adjacent) kitchen to be able to tell.”

Taste: “Has a creamy, Guinness-like style with the kick of an IPA—or vice versa. For a fan of British ales, it's a nice transition beer.”

Food Affinity: “I'm not very good doing beer and food pairing. But it does go well with those macaroni and cheese ball appetizers the kitchen is doing tonight.”
