Notes/Commercial Description: A homage to dads! Dad Shoes is a milk stout brewed with chocolate, coffee, graham crackers, marshmallows, toasted coconut, coconut milk powder, dutch cocoa powder, vanilla salt water taffy, hops, water, malt, and yeast. It pours with a very dark appearance and gives off aromas of vanilla, toffee, sweet marshmallows, chocolate coconut syrup, a hint of graham cracker, and surprisingly, hazelnuts. The flavor follows suit, with a melted cherry chocolate ice cream affect washing over the palate, also featuring gently sweet notes of caramel, cherry cola, marshmallows, and chocolatey, sugary sweetness. It shares similar attributes in taste and appearance with a coffee liqueur. The name and the label honors dads everywhere, old and young, new and seasoned, who value function over fashion, utility over style, for the sake of just being, and who dedicate their lives toward the betterment and well being of their children and loved ones, while carving out a little time for themselves in the most peculiar and inexplicable ways. What does your dad do that no other dad does? Thank you dad, and thank you to dads everywhere.
