This beer arrived last year when I visited Cleveland and drank it at the Brew house. When I arrived this Christmas, it awaited me once more courtesy of my father-in-law. This beer recalls the fear and excitement of the Blackout of 2003. This beer is delicious and complex. The beer is high proof and roasted. I love this beer. It is possibly my favorite American style stout of all. There are the chocolaty notes, there are the hops and roast of any dark stout, but there is no overbearing sweetness. If you see this anywhere, get it.
