1800th Review on BA
Bottle to Bruery Tulip
750ml- Grey Wax

2013 Release

App- This was about the same as BT. Just thick, dark and viscous in the glass. A small amount of brown bubbles formed and was gone rather quickly.

Smell- When I first had a BT, I thought it was more port with a big sweetness, phenol alcohols and fruits. This was like that but the chocolate and hazelnut dominated the flavors. When I put my nose in the glass, I felt I was smelling a hazelnut chocolate milk.

Taste- I felt it this was actually better than BT and MW. Its a good stout due to the base beer. This highlighted the chocolate and hazelnut way more than MW and coffee. This had more flavor and was creamier and layered.

Mouth- Thick and viscous. A low carbonation level and was very creamy just like BT. The hazelnut dominates the residual flavors along with the chocolate.

Drink- It was a good beer. It was expected. I appreciate when someone says its a hazelnut beer, it should taste like hazelnuts. This was that and was a huge beer.

look: 3.75 | smell: 5 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 3.75

A - Not nearly as heavy as I was expecting. Very viscous coffee with no head. The legs on the glass looks like scotch.

S - Big bourbon! Hints of hazelnut, chocolate, toasted malts. Smells very sugary and sweet. Desert beer?

T - Slightly let down by the amount of hazelnut in the taste. Pretty much none. Reminded me more of a chocolate stout than anything else. Don't get me wrong, this is a big, sweet barrel bomb, but the hazelnut that I was hoping for just wasn't there. For the money I could have just gotten a Black Tuesday.

M - Very sticky and stays on the palette for a while. Small amount of carbonation. As always for the Bruery, so smooth for %18.5.

O - This beer was on my radar for a while and I was a little let down. Next time I'll just get another Chocolate Rain.
