Black Hawk Stout

To me this a much more traditional stout than many of the more modern representations out there. A black pour with hints of brown too, there is a distinct smoky aroma present. Good head and nice lacing.

Tastes are on the dry side of things with some burnt malt character and a really good astringent hop bite. Not “hoppy” hops as such, but dry and bitter – the kind of stout my Dad would have enjoyed drinking.

Dry and short finish, this is an old-time stout where double this and uber that have been put to one side to remind us of what a traditional stout should taste like, that is a beer in a style close to its origins.
