This beer is all about the malt. Dark Munich malt, rich in melanoidins (brewer-speak for "flavor"), provides a monstrous backbone for this deceptively easy beer. A light balance of Horizon and Santiam hops is there to support the talent.

Hearty enough to provide a monk's Lenten sustenance. Robust enough to feed Midwestern grit. Bold enough to kick a Sasquatch in the junk.
