Dark Days of November
Posted: November 7, 2016
Welcome to the dark side of craft beer and the Dark Days of November. We’re offering a special taster tray of our favorite and limited dark beers. Check out the line up and stop in at the tap room for a taste.
Nitro Cutthroat Porter
Everything you love about Cutthroat but with a silky, creamy finish. Smooth, robust and inspired by classic London porters. We use dark roasted malts to create a deep, rich color and flavor that hint at chocolate and coffee.
3 C Stout Chili Chocolate Cinnamon Stout
Warning! This beer has some major kick to it. You will also pick up hints of chocolate, vanilla and cinnamon. The heat comes on a little later and will stick around to remind you who’s boss.
Sweet Prince Coffee Milk Stout
A big, balanced, sweet milk stout with locally roasted coffee. We added just a hint of vanilla to really “tie the room together.” We think you’ll agree that nothing about this beer is “over the line.” So stay, finish your coffee.
Mountain Standard Black IPA
We brew this one with hand-picked hops on Colorado’s western Slop. The assertive American hop profile and roasted malt character balance perfectly with just a touch of bitterness.
Charlie’s Udder Bourbon barrel aged Lugene
Since we will be retiring Lugene for 2017, we wanted to give this crowd favorite a proper send off. We took the last batch tried a few different things:
The first-last batch of Lugene was aged in bourbon oak barrels. This triple chocolate milk stout is rich and smooth flavor with hints of smokey wood and syrupy sweetness.
3 Teets to the Wind Stranahan’s Barrel Aged Lugene
We took the rest of the Lugene and let it rest in Stranahan’s whiskey barrels. You’ll find it rich and full bodied, with notes of molasses and dark chocolate liquor. Sure to knock the socks off any stout lover.
