This beer is definitely for a very specific, niche drinker. One – because it’s a rich, roasty dark beer brewed with 13 (!?) malts. Two – because it’s moderately smokey thanks to several smoked malts from Skagit Valley Malt . And also – it’s pretty low in alcohol. Thus, we don’t expect most of you to gravitate towards it. But there is ONE human that we know of that will be stoked on this beer: Steve’s wife Holly. Since their first encounter, at a dorm party in Waterville Maine way back in 2005, Holly has forever preferred stouts. And then a few years later, she discovered smoked beers and went all in on those. And today, those two styles are still 2 of her top 3. So we have that going for us. As most of you know, our names tend to have multiple meanings, so we figured we’d let you in on this one, even if it’s endearingly embarrassing. And if you’re wondering what style rounds out her Top 3…Come on now! WE’RE AN IPA BREWERY AFTER ALL!
