Furthermore Three Feet Deep

12oz bottle brewed with some peat smoked malt. Pours into my glass a charcoal black with muddy brown highlights. A half inch of tan head forms and as it falls stringy lacing is left in its wake. Aromas of roasty, charred malts along with a bit of cocoa and coffee grounds. Smoke and peat make themselves known in the background along with a touch of dark fruit. Quite nice.

First sip brings a dark roasted malt upfront followed some cocoa and brewed coffee. Smokiness hits midway through and on the way down along with a touch of earthy, peaty flavor. Finishes quite dry with a bit of bitterness and a light lingering smoky aftertaste.

Mouthfeel is medium bodied with a fast moving slightly prickly carbonation. Goes down easy while seeming to be a little on the light side for a stout. Overall, a tasty stout with a nice twist from the peat smoked malts. I wouldn't mind sitting down to a few bottles of this one. Glad to see a new brewer in Wisconsin and look forward to trying more of their offerings.

Overall I gave this brew a 4.05 out of 5. Worth seeking out if you're in Wisconsin
