Release #42

A: The pitch black liquid spewed forth into my goblet producing a persistent dark brown head. Streaks of fine bubbles kick up when swirled and slowly slide down the edge. No glimmer of light shines through even on the edges.

S: Moderate dark roasted coffee, dark chocolate not 100% cacao - more like 70% with a little sweetness. Mild caramel with a hint of cherry. No hop aroma, light fruity esters from the ferment.

T: Beautiful, big dark chocolate flavor right from the start - Sweet but in the way a chocolate bar is. Milk chocolate, caramel, vanilla and toffee come through in the middle followed by a blast of coffee to round it out. The bitterness is low to medium with a mild ethenol / wiskey / boozey character. The barrel doesn’t come through at all. Balance is on the sweet malt / chocolate side.

M: Moderate alcohol warming in the chest. Medium carbonation with a medium full mouthfeel. creamy with no astringency.

O: Tons of chocolate and coffee, very dessert like. Put this beer in your mouthhole if you haven’t tried it - it’s a tasty beer for sure just not my thing. Would have liked more barrel and less sweetness.
