Bobcat Cafe & Brewery

South Mountain Stout
A semi-dry stout offering an initial malt & caramel flavor profile coupled with a distinctive dry-roasted bitterness in the finish. The emphasis of coffee like flavor and a light degree of roasted malt aromas define much of the character with medium body.

Grateful Hands Brewing

Un-named Coffee Stout

Harpoon

Chocolate Stout
Harpoon Chocolate Stout is brewed with an abundance of chocolate malt and a touch of chocolate.

Hill Farmstead Brewery

Earl Coffee Oatmeal Stout
This Stout is crafted from American malted barley, Flaked Oats, English roasted malts, American hops, Organic Guatemalan Coffee, our ale yeast, and water from our well. It is unfiltered and naturally carbonated. A silhouette of coffee and malt – an embodiment of complexity and drinkability.

Genealogy of Morals
Rye coffee imperial stout aged in Madeira barrels.

Lawson’s Finest Liquids

Fayston Maple Imperial Stout
A huge, rich, and strong stout brewed with a maple twist. Designed to keep you warm on sub-zero nights and for sipping with a fine meal or dessert.

Long Trail Brewing

Coffee Stout
Long Trail Coffee Stout is made in cooperation with the Vermont Coffee Company using 100% certified fair trade, organic coffee. Brewed with their freshest, Dark Roast coffee, Long Trail Coffee Stout offers a rich coffee flavor complemented by a beautifully full head.

Magic Hat Brewing Company

Heart of Darkness
Filled with the howling of black dogs that haunt the long forgotten shadows of the human soul. Our inky-black stout had a smooth, round palate with a dreamlike undercurrent of bittersweet chocolate. This dense liquid-silk summoned hope from hibernation and balanced winter’s endless white snows with a rich swirl of creamy black rapture.

Feast of Fools
In pre-Christian times, the celebration of darkness and light was marked with great halls filled with smoke & mirrors. Guilded goblets brimming with seasonal brews were lifted to lips, speaking a language no longer known. The winter wind finds its way through heavy wood doors. The present connects the past through the brewer’s art and a new beer is born

Maple Chocolate Stout
A big bodied beer with a velvet-y mouth feel and subtle warmth. Maple Chocolate Stout pairs the richness of chocolate with a deep, complex malt body and hints of maple syrup.

McNeill’s Brewery

Dark Angel
Dark Angel is an Imperial Stout.

Oatmeal Stout
McNeill’s Oatmeal Stout is so black, the sun won’t shine through it. Thick as pea soup, it has notes of chocolate, espresso, coffee, toast and black tea from the use of a blend of ten grains, 20% oats and British hops.

Northshire Brewery

Chocolate Stout
Our British style chocolate stout is brewed with chocolate malt, imported English malt and hops, with a secret chocolate addition. Robust and full-flavored with a balanced bitterness. Not sweet, the subtle cocoa notes show up in the finish.

Otter Creek Brewing Company

Wolaver’s Oatmeal Stout
Brimming with darkly roasted malts, this rich and creamy stout features hints of coffee and chocolate, the addition of Vermont grown organic oats adds to the unfiltered, full bodied experience.

Rock Art Brewery

Stump Jumper Gnarly Stout
Named for those rugged people who work and play in the woods! This Gnarly Stout rises to the task, being a bit chewy and a hefty 5.8% abv, cranking plenty of Challenger and Perle hops. The perfect days end for the Stump Jumper in all of us. Brewed with pale, crystal, black, chocolate roasted malts, oats, flaked barley, Perle and Challenger hops.

Extreme Pumpkin Imperial Spruce Stout
It’s a big stout brewed in the colonial fashion with large amounts of pumpkins and spruce tips added to the kettle for flavor and bittering qualities. The pumpkins complement the malt flavors and are used to add sugars to the mash. Whatever you do, do not think this is going to taste like pumpkin pie. For a SLOW experience, pair with BBQ venison loin, extra sharp cheddar cheese, vegetarian chili, fresh warm soft pretzel dipped in a honey mustard or grass fed beef stew.

Trout River

Chocolate Stout
A dark, deliciously roasty brew with hints of chocolate in flavor and aroma. Velvety smooth with a dry, roasted finish.
