Since it is 36 degrees and snowing on this lovely May 1st day here in Minnesota
thought perhaps this bottle of stout might be appropriate and was I right.
Poured a twelve ounce bottle of this lovely black and brownish brew into my favorite
drinking vessel. A beautiful lingering brownish copper foam that settles quickly with a little lacing on the sides. It then settles and bubbles of alcohol rise to the surface.
Smells of roasted coffee and maple bacon, very inviting indeed on a cold winter(spring) evening.
Taste is a wonderful bitter with a smooth chocolate smoke aftertaste, not normally such a huge malt guy but damn this is good right now!
Hits my tongue with a sharp bitterness that quickly fads to sweetness and maybe even some black cherry.
Overall very impressive, and at 9% very drinkable, goes down very smoothly, yes sir I may have another.
Thanks to my beer guy for this one, I will pick up more asap!
