Notes: We are pleased to announce a new addition to our Milk Stout lineup: Spiritual Unrest! We have always been enthralled with coffee, and how different varietals, regions, and processes can produce vastly different characteristics in the roasted bean. For Spiritual Unrest, we utilized a natural process Ethiopian coffee, notorious for producing heavy berry flavors - particularly blueberry - and coupled it with a mild infusion of pure blueberry fruit. The result is dark, mysterious, harmonious, and highly enjoyable. Spiritual Unrest pours pitch black in the glass and releases aromas and flavors of milk chocolate, blueberry, and coffee ice cream. The coffee and fruit are congruous, producing an outcome that is greater than the sum of its parts. Spiritual Unrest adheres to our ethos of producing harmonious, delicious, authentic malt beverages that never tire the palate and are a joy to share with friends and loved ones.

28 June 2020 - Beer #130

Corona Day #108

Price: $5.30 at the brewery

Appearance: 4 - super black with a lovely tan head. Are those blueberry puree floaties in there? Eww!

Nose: 4 - very pleasant stout with subtle coffee. No blueberry. Overall fairly mild.

Taste: 4 - again, overall fairly mild. I get just hints of coffee. The berry is slightly more pronounced. It's mostly stout, the adjuncts are purely complementary.

Mouth: 4 - somewhat thin, but pretty bubbly.

Overall: 4 - I'm not really into fruity stouts, but the fruit here is so mild I'm okay with it. Nothing spectacular here, but plenty delicious for $5.

Stay safe out there, my friends.

Cheers!

Sampling a cellar temp 16 oz can poured into my snifter. The beer was canned 1/29 and has been cellared since then.
The beer pours a black espresso color from the can and no light passes through when I hold the glass to a light source.
A fizzy tan head foams up 1cm but fades to a thin edge layer soon after the pour.

The aroma is a mix of sweet chocolate and some coffee too. I get hints of roasted malt, but no hops nor any hint of the ABV in this can.
The first sip reveals a smooth and creamy texture with a medium to thick body and gentle rolling carbonation.
The flavor is similar to the nose with milk chocolate and coffee mixing with some light roasted notes. Again no hop presence and the ABV still hidden.
I enjoy this beer and find it to be flavorful and easy to drink. Worth a shot if you like sweet stouts and TH.

Picked-up a single can at the Tree House Brewery in Charlton for $5.30. My eighty fifth brew from these guys. TH is known for their IPAs, but don't sleep on their stouts. Not their best, but still nice, pinged a bit for $.

Appearance - Poured into a snifter, the beer was a murky black color with a dark mocha colored head.

Smell - The nose brought to mind fresh rossted coffee with sweeter notes.

Taste - At the front, were notes of fresh coffee with sweeter notes toward the back. The coffee notes are a little burnt and toasty. The profile was smooth with chocolate but lacks the promised blueberry until the beer warms in the back.

Mouthfeel - The beer was smooth with low carbonation and lactose sugar. It did seem a little thin.

Overall - The overall profile is very smooth and drinkable. The coffee notes are quite tasty, but the blueberry needs to be stronger.
