Last day of the Parallel 49/Central City advent calendar. I was very impressed by it. 330ml bottle poured into tulip.

Pours nearly black with ruby highlights, with a one finger head of fine bubbles that leaves Utah desert landmark lace as it recedes.

Smells of fresh-ground coffee, roasted chocolate malt and hard-to-detect hops.

Tastes of more coffee, rich black chocolate, indistinct dark fruit and more faint hops.

Feels thick and silky. Full bodied with smooth carbonation. Finishes sweet and chocolatey, with coffee and hop bitterness keeping it somewhat in line.

Verdict: Highly recommended. A very nice, warming stout. Too bad the thermostat is broken and the house is boiling hot.

330ml bottle, day 24 of the 2015 Craft Crossing Calendar, a 'collaborative' effort once again between Parallel 49 and Central City brewing. Ticket Twenty-Four, and we out!

This beer pours a solid black, with indeterminate basal red cola edges, and three fingers of puffy, loosely foamy, and mostly bubbly brown head, which leaves some decent dissolving limestone wall lace around the glass as it evenly recedes.

It smells of bitter artisanal coffee grounds, grainy and roasted caramel malt, dark chocolate, a faint black orchard fruitiness, and musty earthy, leafy, and grassy hops. The taste is semi-sweet, rich and fudgy chocolate, a lessened and now generic-seeming coffee measure, caramel/toffee malt, some mildly tart plum and black cherry fruitiness, and more tame earthy, leafy, and faintly perfumed floral hoppiness.

The bubbles are adequate in their alternating frivolous and supportive frothiness, the body a decent medium-heavy weight for the style, and generally smooth, with a mildly tattered creaminess hitching along for the ride. It finishes sweet, silky, and replete with choco-caramel, as the coffee and hops continue their long arcing wane.

While not explicitly Yuletide-oriented for Christmas Eve, this is an otherwise stellar winter warmer, without actually being anywhere near that style itself. Yup, big and chocolaty, the coffee kept at a fairly even keel, and the 18-proof booze possessing the manners to not tap me on the shoulder and interrupt my dance with this tweaked-out Betty.
