MadTree’s dry-hopped ale combines carmel and biscuit malt flavors in happy equilibrium with late addition American hops. The approachable balance is intentional although the name is “hoppy accident.”

Soulless will tease the senses with unexpected and unique flavors celebrating the life lesson that sometimes, indulging in something a little risquè can have its benefits.

In the hills of Appalachia, miners excavated coal from the ground while Bad Tom put six men in it. Breathitt County has long been a part of coal country, and its residents certainly haven’t forgotten the atrocities committed by a certain cold-hearted killer. Bad Tom Smith brewed a beer as black as coal and as ruthless as the man himself. Coal Hearted Killer Russian Imperial Stout pours thick and creamy – a pitch-black liquid loaded with rich fudge, chocolate, and roasted coffee. At 11.9% ABV, there can be no mercy. Be on the lookout – a killer is on the loose!
