Beer Description

A long walk down a dark lane can lead to unexpected outcomes; that menacing shadow can turn out to be a welcoming shade tree.

This dark and creamy beer channels the rich, brooding flavors of the forest. For all this beer’s rough nuts and gnarly roots, Shady Character’s flavors are genteel and as well-mannered as you please, a real gentleman in disguise. We start with a classic porter, as we think its soft chocolatey flavors are perfect to showcase the complex, distinctive flavors of American black walnut. Then we dig deep into botanic brewing’s treasure trove: licorice, roasted chestnuts and a dash of spices all add layers of flavors and tie the whole thing together.
