Growler fill from Hopcat, GR.
Several pours into a tulip glass, it pours a brownish black color with a thin skim of tan foam across the surface. Some larger bubbles cluster to one side and slowly ebb away one by one.
Cocoa and vanilla bean sweetness, a hint of tootsie roll as it warms. Light and pleasant, not overpowering or overly sweet.
Moderate chile heat comes through in the aftertaste, backing up an initial taste of lightly sweet dark chocolate, mild roastiness and light vanilla again. Mellow feel, light carb and body. With a bigger swig you feel the chile heat more, but sip it and it's a lingering background element, nice. It does build up a bit over time. Overall a great version of a chile stout, a style i've had three of this week already... must be a record, lol.
Thanks to Justin for sharing the growler!
