Furthermore Three Feet Deep

My run on California craft beers is over for the time being (until I get my next transaction of beers at least). Instead I am switching back to an old standby for beer number 154: Wisconsin.

I was first introduced to Furthermore Beer a couple of years ago when they started popping up in the Chicagoland area and the family took a long weekend trip to South-Central Wisconsin. At that time they brewed their beer in another facility as they didn’t their own brewing equipment.

Three Feet Deep is a Dry Stout that has a bunch of peat/smoke added. I had this beer originally almost a year ago with the profile seemingly having a bigger peat aroma and flavor the first time around. The aroma was more subdued with very little coming through while the peat and stout qualities picked up more in the taste. This latest bottle though had more of an ashy taste in the finish.

I have to admit that smoke in my beer is far from my favorite. Furthermore makes this beer fairly drinkable with the smoke reaching close to a saturation point for me. I would have it again, as I did, but only occasionally. Enjoy!

Aroma: 6, Taste: 9, Look: 9, Drinkability: 9, Overall: 8.3

Useless Fact: America purchased Alaska from Russia for $7,200,000—about 2 cents an acre.
