Steamworks Brassneck Firewalker Collaboration Ale

collab beerThis collaboration between brewmasters at Steamworks and Brassneck pours black with a lasting tan head that sticks right to the glass with telltale signs of how big a sip I took! Smells of smoked malt, cocoa, dried fruits with some meaty notes. On the palate it’s again smoky, nutty, with a tad of bitterness on the finish. I’d like to try this with BBQ ribs.
