Notes & Commercial Description:
Beer added by: atsprings on 10-02-2010

A tribute to the Southern tradition of an RC Cola and a MoonPie. We brew this beer with biscuity malts, vanilla, and chocolate nibs from Raleigh's own Escazu Artisan Chocolates. But instead of using a traditional, dry English or Scottish ale yeast, we get zany and brew with a German (Weihenstephan) yeast strain. This lightens up the beer and adds vanilla and banana notes to give it that MoonPie connection. The result is a drinkable "dark ale" that, like most of our plow-to-pint beers, doesn't fit neatly into any one particular style. Have your three martinis, Boss Man. We'll take a Working Man's Lunch.

Poured from a growler purchased at Stella Brew in Winston-Salem

A: Pours like a flat soda. Same color as a cola. No head to speak of.

S: Yeast strain really comes through putting off a bananna-ish aroma with light amounts of malt and chocolate burried deep in there.

T: A lot like the nose. Bannana-ish taste, a little clove, hefeweizen notes are present up front and throughout. It is only at the end that you pick up some malt characteristics. Has a little bit of a spice kick to it.

M: Light to medium bodied with a moderate amount of carbonation.

O: A very interesting beer. Not quite what I was expecting - but not in a bad way. Wish a little more chocolate was present to balance some of the yeasty bananna like qualitys. Will probably revist this one later.
