Your ship has just run aground in a terrible nor'easter; a St. Bernard (in Maine!?) comes to rescue with a canister around his neck - in it, one bottle of Cadillac Mountain Stout. You wrestle the canister from the giant beast.
The aroma is sweet, sweet chocolate, hints of caramel and fine roasted malts. The sizable head fades into light mocha lacing.
The initial sip is chocolate and malt decadence; intertwined with an appropriately moderate carbonation. The palate is all dessert - this has the sweetness and character of a freshly baked brownie. Indeed, the admixture of malts and floral hops keeps this stout enticing and interesting.
Mouthfeel is full and rich, with prominent aftertastes of coffee-tinged malts.
You forget your troubles; lost silks and pearls are of no interest to you. Was your wife on board? You're not sure. All you can think of what a tremendous, well balanced beer this is.
After a disappointing first go at it last month, I tried it again, and was richly rewarded. Worthy of true beerfaring adventures.
