Black & Red is a velvety smooth dry-minted stout with a serious fruit problem! The huge portion of heavily roasted grains brings a dry, chocolaty character which contrasts its sweet fruity full body. As you tilt your glass, youll notice that the black color you are perceiving is actually a very deep reddish hue and the rich creamy foam has a tinge of pink to it. Black & Red starts off roasted and warming with a robust mintiness from 100lbs of organic mint (from our friends at Washington's Green Grocer) added to the secondary fermentation and finishes out sweet and smooth.

    Bought a growler from the local grocer and took it to a fairly large tasting later in the evening. Over half of the group really enjoyed their samples while the remaining handful weren't sure what to think. In standard DFH fashion this is an off the wall, all over the place beer. Roasty malty stout base backed by a ton of tart cherries with an assault of fresh, clean mint. 6-8 ounces is about all a sample should warrant as the mint will ultimately become too much. Refreshing and clean palate cleanser, and one hell of a conversation topic. Would work best as an aperitif or dessert beer. Pour is a dark ruby brown, tan head with a pink tinge. Some licorice and chocolate poke their heads in from time to time.
