Black Oak Instigator

A dark and creamy stout with chocolate and coffee undertones that packs just the right amount of sweetness. This beer starts bold and finishes easy. A surprisingly easy drinking beer even while sitting close to 9% ABV. It's definitely not a session beer and is sure to instigate something.

Jack and Dort
Style: Lager - Dortmunder / Export
ABV: 6.3%
# Ratings: 1
Score: 4.75
Slightly maltier and a deeper gold than the Pilsners brewed in nearby Pils, the Dortmunder was a lager made for 19th century German industrial workers. High levels of sulfate in the region’s water gave the beer a distinct sulfur flavor that balanced with the bitterness from the hops. Named after its city of origin, Dortmund, the Dortmunder lager was never less than 5 percent ABV: light enough to quench a coal miner’s thirst, but hearty enough to reward him for a long day of manual labor.
