Fistful of Cake - German ChocolateFistful of Cake - German Chocolate
Notes: The third of our Fistful of Cake series, this beer was inspired by the classic German chocolate cake. A rich and roasty base is enhanced by toasted coconut and Ugandan vanilla beans. Grab this cake when you can, because once it's gone....you know the rest.

4.07/5  rDev -1.5%
look: 3.75 | smell: 4.25 | taste: 4 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4

Dark pour, good viscosity. Head retention solid, leaving small traces of residual lacing.

Tootsie roll nose; milk chocolate, cocoa powder, subtle vanilla, and malt on the tail.

Similar to the nose, with more prevalent malt and baker’s chocolate. Good contrast from the nose, not overly sweet and overpowering.

Smooth and with a good viscosity. Slight warmth as it goes down, with mild stickiness. Carbonation is low/medium.

On draft poured into a snifter.

Look- A nice dark black with a thin tan head that mostly faded quickly. More lacing than I expected.

Smell- A really nice chocolate and vanilla mix. There is a hint of coconut there as it warmed.

Taste- Pretty much follows the smell. Chocolate up front but not like an overly sweet taste. The vanilla is great and not much coconut until the middle of the pour. I get no alcohol in it.

Feel- Light carbonation with some coating.

Overall- A solid stout at 9%. I would definitely have it again.

Black with a pinky width of khaki colored crown.
The nose brings unsweetened chocolate, milk chocolate and a slight hint of bitter bakers chocolate. Hints of vanilla creme.
The coconut and vanilla are slight behind the chocolate, but I do still like how it’s integrated together. Nothing is coming through as artificial.
Not hugely thick, but does remind you of a kinda unbaked cake.
Overall, it could use a little work to improve but it’s not a bad beer by any means and was enjoyable to try.
