When in Chicagoland area, I had to chance to stop by one of my new favorite craft breweries in the Midwest. I am talking about Buckle Down Brewery. When I was in town, they launched one of their newer beers, which is Stompbox Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts, you know the history of this new Midwest Craft brewery. If you have not, please, go back and read those blog posts to get to know this craft brewery. Let us get into the brew.
It has a jet black color with a nice lace tan head. The aroma of this stout has chocolate notes. The taste has a chocolate with roasted malt. The aftertaste has an alcohol finish that bites at the end. It is a sipping beer.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Leaving town, I will be back to this brewery in some shape or form. Buckle Down Brewery makes some great beers. I was glad I was in town for the launch of their Stout. I knew if their Porter was awesome. There is no way in Blue Hell they would find away to mess up their Stout. I was clearly right. This is a great Stout with a nice chocolate notes and a nice bite of alcohol at the aftertaste. If I still lived in Chicago, this brewery would be my source of beer. I will be back visiting them now and then. I highly recommend you trying this beer. They are worth the road trip into the south side of Chicago. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
