Combining the flavors of a porter and campfire s'more, this beer is brewed with a blend of caramel, biscuit, brown, and roasted malts and is then aged with chocolate and vanilla. The result is a rich and decadent beer with the flavor of milk-chocolate, marshmallow, and toasty graham cracker. Just like the real thing.
A mix of malts -- Maris Otter from England, Chocolate, Crystal, Roasted Barley and Chocolate Wheat -- along with EKG hops and specially-roasted White Electric coffee from New Harvest roasters create a complex beverage with notes of bittersweet coffee and chocolate.
Tell Tale Tart is presented as “a slightly sour ale” that derives pleasant, refreshing lactic acidity from brewhouse souring, a process of lowering the pH during the brewing process. The brewhouse souring method results in a crisp, clean acidity that serves as a contrast to a soft, subtly sweet malt character contributed by our base pale malt and Munich malt.
