Roasty and alcohol nose. Pours to a nice light brown head and medium bodied. Redish brown, kind of like coca-cola, and not a lot of light getting through at all. Sweet and dark with some nice legs. Definite hops and a very late bitterness after the swallow. OK...so don’t laugh, but I get a distinct camembert flavor in the middle. A nice strong stout. Yay! Tasted from the bottle @ 60°F.

Fritz Maytag, owner of San Francisco’s Anchor Brewing Company, is regarded as the founding father of the craft brewing movement. Frtiz agreed to guest brew this very special ale with us in honor of our 30th anniversary. As a nod to the dark ales and stouts that seduced both Fritz and Ken in the early years, we bring you this pioneering stout, a rich and roasted ale, perfect for aging, and worthy of your finest snifter. Enjoy!
