On the darkest days of the year, some are raising glasses of dark beers.

Fiddler’s Hearth,127 N. Main St., South Bend, celebrated Winter Warmer on Monday, but the taps can still provide tastes of the hearty stouts.

The celebration of beer included a range of stouts and barley wines. Five-ounce snifters made their way from tap to glass to table to lips in the full pub Monday night as musicians played Irish music.

The list of stouts available was impressive:

While Guinness is a dark, malty beer that’s low in alcohol, these beers are heftier, richer and higher in alcohol. The Dogfish beer actually has more alcohol than most wine and was one of the highest-alcohol beers produced.

If you’re unsure of dark beers, they may not be the place to start. However, the range of flavors is richer and fuller than what you expect from beer. The snifters are $2.50 to $5, depending on the beer.

If you’re a fan of dark beer, Fiddler’s Hearth has a nice array until they’re gone.
