One of their most sought-after beers! A rich, chocolatey English Porter with a clean finish. Using only the finest malts, a portion of malted Rye gives a spicy, slightly dry finish.

Stax is light in every way but its color. The blended beer gets its roasty flavor from dark roast malts and its bready backbone from light-colored American base malts. Low hopping and two separate special ferments blend together to make a refreshing black beer that finishes clean and makes you want more.

Pure maple syrup is infused during the conditioning phase, and is noticeable from start to finish. Chocolate malts add roasted notes to the flavor and aroma. It is also more highly hopped than most browns to create a balanced, yet complex brew.

Deep garnet color with a creamy tan head, the aroma has hints of dark chocolate, roasted malt and burnt toffee, with a taste of roasted malt and notes of bittersweet chocolate, raisins and smoky coffe-like character. This beer is chock full of complex flavors, yet it’s very well balanced.

Generous amounts of baked sweet potatoes (provided by Tennessee’s very own Delvin Farms and roasted by Flavor Catering) are mashed with the grains to create a complex, silky smooth stout with a prominent presence of coffee and bitter dark chocolate. This stout is great on its own, but complements many dessert items. Look for the roastiness of the sweet potatoes on the finish.
