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.

look: 3.5 | smell: 4 | taste: 3.5 | feel: 4.5 | overall: 4

Appearance - Black body with a white pillowy white head that lingers

Smell - Chocolate Nibs banana yeast and a bit of sweetness - for once a beer is living up to its lofty goal but then again what is up with the RC cola?

Taste - this is right on the money. The taste comes through just like the nose and there is barely any malt additions to distract you from the brewers goal. This is a really interesting beer.

Mouthfeel- light and crisp. The flavors don't linger for too which is appreciated for something with such a distinctive taste.

Drinkability- it's a fun dessert beer and a neat surprise. Don't go searching for a deeper meaning but do go out and order it with an open mind.
