only $19.99 for a 64oz fill @ joe canal's in woodbridge ($1 additional off for bottle club members)
2 and a half fingers of head, almost boiling over on an average pour, cocoa foam with some large bubbles forming, the head intends to stick around for awhile. pitch black tone, no light is escaping this one, lacing is good, this is a good example of the style eyes wise
dry malt, dry hints of cocoa, slightly burnt french toast, caraway, an almost smoke blanket lies underneath tying it all together, tight and nice, like my sister... every note is in near perfect balance here, me diggy
carbonation bites just right crating a corridor between the initial sweetness to the chocolate bitterness and then cocoa puff sensation that leaves the mouth almost dry, a little lighter body wise than expected, maybe needs a touch of weight there to propel this to excellence, this is creamy without being uber rich, again the carbonation bites just at the right time to really separate the flavors.
a nice sipping brew, great with dessert, probably could use this in all sorts of recipes... definitely worth checking out, one of the better milk stouts I have had (not as if they are flooding the market of course)
music : ty tabor - naomi's solar pumpkin
