This one is a group effort from Stone, 21st Amendment, and Firestone Walker. An all-California brew they decided to use many California-local ingredients including chia seeds, pink peppercorns, fennel seeds, and Mission figs.
I can say they were right on the “roasty” part. They were also right on the “black” part. I honestly can’t taste figs, or fennel, etc. There is a spice note there but to me its just big black ale. Tasty but worth the $3.40 a bottle I paid? Not so sure.
I’d definitely drink it again if provided by someone else 😉
