Damon: Dandelion ChocolateDamon: Dandelion Chocolate
Notes: Damon (1993-2004) was our brother—devout and patient in an age of busyness and distraction. In his honor, we offer this version of his namesake imperial stout. We selected three barrels that had aged for nearly two years and conditioned them further atop cocoa nibs from Hacienda Azul in Costa Rica, sourced, roasted, and winnowed by the best bean to bar chocolate company we know: Dandelion Chocolate in San Francisco, Calif.

This one pours a very dark black color, with a small head, and a little bit of lacing.

This smells like sweet milk chocolate, oily malt, vanilla, and heavy roast.

This honestly was not as good as I figured it would be. The chocolate is sweet and almost oily, and buries the barrel character that is so intrinsic to Damon. There's a bit roasty and ashy bitterness on the back end, too. If there was more barrel here, or less chocolate, this would be better.

This is medium bodied, and very creamy and oily. It's not super drinkable overall.

This was surprisingly messy, considering this brewery. Regular Damon and the various iterations of coffee Damon are all much, much better.
