Double Stout | 8% ABV | 50% IBU
This stout is best poured into a glass. When poured the beer is jet black with a cascade of mocha colored bubbles and foam which settles into the head. The aroma is dark like raisin and dark caramel. Dark roasted coffee and dark chocolate notes are supported by dark caramel and dried fruit flavors. When you taste the beer it is very smooth and full, perfect on cooler fall and winter days.
Opened in September 2014, Fair State is the first brewery in Minnesota to use a cooperative business model, and only the third in the country. The brewery is actually owned by coop members. Members enjoy voting rights, the opportunity to serve on the cooperative board of directors, special discounts and beer release access, and a number of other perks. The art gallery-like taproom features a large number of rotating taps, including the tasty, sour, LÃ„CTOBÃ„C series beers.
