About the Beer:
A new month, another new beer! Our 23rd in 23 weeks, to be exact. Hot Box Smoked Stout is a silky smooth medium-bodied stout with slightly sweet notes at first sip that give way to balanced hoppy bitterness over the course of the first few drinks. As this beer warms up in front of you, expect some evolution of the flavors! The hoppy bitterness will give way to a dark chocolately malt bitterness, and the profile of the natural smoke will start to shift. Expect a strong presence of natural smoke throughout the entire experience; when the beer is colder it will hit you in your nose first. As the beer rises a few degrees, you’ll find the smoke in your mouth that will probably make you think of your favorite jerky.
About the Name:
Hot Boxing references the very proprietary brewing process that injects the smoke into this beer. No really.
