Castle Danger George Hunter Stout

This 8.0% ABV stout is from the Castle Danger Brewery of Two Harbors, Minnesota. So who is George Hunter you ask? The can says he was the great-great grandfather of their founder.  George Hunter immigrated from Belfast and owned and operated the Iron Range Brewing Company in Tower, Minnesota from the late 1880's until Prohibition. 

The beer pours pure black in color. There is over an inch of thick, creamy, foamy, light tan head. The aroma is dark roasted malts, semi-sweet, chocolate, creamy, with light char. The taste follows the path of the aromas, adding in a mineral and dark fruit tang. The beer drinks smooth with moderate carbonation. It drinks lighter than you would think for 8.0% ABV.
