(The Base Beer for the Enlightened Despot)

Bold and aggressive best describe the Virginia Black Bear. Ten Specialty Grains comprise the backbone of the beer and high alpha American hops give the bear her teeth. Notes of dark chocolate and coffee abound. Used as the base beer for the Enlightened Despot, the Virginia Black Bear has escaped to wander where she wants. Beware the bear.
