Cuvée des Trolls glass
A ~ Pours dark brown with a copper hue. Not much lacing..
S ~ Oatmeal with Brown Sugar, Wheat bread, & Caramel. I'm really not getting any coffee.
T ~ Oatmeal follows through with caramel & brown sugar following right behind. Cappuccino powder...barely. Hops are very mild & earthy. Coffee is so mildly expressed I feel I am not even tasting it. Nice prune notes for what it's worth.
M ~ Nice sweetness, but turns grapey quickly upon warming. Mo roastyness akin to a good Coffee porter. Carbonation is spritzy & doesn't worth with the thin frame of this beer. Faintly grassy.
D ~ Pretty drinkable, yes, but not wroth seeking out. No coffee here. Frankly I'm pretty disappointed. Thanks Brad for the opportunity!
