The Black Cabin Smoked Ale by Crown Valley Brewing in St. Genevieve, MO has long been a star beer in the shop. It features a rich, maple-smokey taste that is incredibly unique and delightfully flavorful. When we tried for the first time the immediate response is emotional. It made us think back to all the camping trips we have been on, and all the good times around a fire-pit. The combination of smoked and chocolate malts creates a creamy, smokey flavor that finishes smooth. If you are wanting to step a little outside of the box, give this ale a try. Oh, and pair it with a nice cigar (now available) and your night is set.
