Coal Miner Stout

Beer description

A true working class beer, our Coal Miner Stout is satisfying but still refreshing after a hard day’s work. Roasty, dark chocolate notes add depth in flavor and color black as coal while flaked oats and barley create a full, creamy mouthfeel. Miners and craft connoisseurs alike want a coal miner stout when they take their pick!

What the design needed

quote from a technical task :

«This art will feature a small white weasel called an Ermine personified as a Coal Miner coming out of a hole covered in soot.»

I have chosen a very discreet color scheme which is all built on nuances. I wanted the label to look noble and expensive without losing craft content at the same time.
