“If many believe it, it must be so.” That’s the succinct way to describe argumentum ad populum, an argumentative fallacy found often in both classical logic discussions and internet beer forums. Being amateur classicists ourselves, we at Cigar City Brewing avoid fueling fallacious arguments about anything, be it epistemology, idealism or barrel-aged beer. We present this apple brandy barrel-aged stout brewed with marionberries and black raspberries as a liquid monument to the dangers of fallacious arguments, both online and off.

Tasting Notes

Fudge, fresh ground espresso, and calvados aromas are complimented by a hint of bing cherry on the nose. Dark semi-sweet chocolate presents strongly on the tongue before blackberry jam, dried cherries and raisins take the wheel of this berry-infused stout. Long lingering on the palate with flavors reminiscent of the finest chocolate-covered cherry persisting in the most pleasant way.
