The ReaperAle Brewery has nothing to be grim about -- these guys have scored a big hit with their best-seller, Mortality Stout. This beer pours with a rich brown head and gives off a touch of both chocolaty and smoky aromas. It has an enduring roasted flavor with mild hints of licorice. Near perfect carbonation helps the smoothness last into the finish while holding the smoky aroma in the beer longer than most brews. Overall, this is an excellent offering from a brewery we expect to enjoy for eternity.
