Number Crunch is an ode to the chocolate bar; a bourbon barrel aged base of vanilla stout shot to Mars with a finishing 200 lb. touch of long-thought-lost Peruvian Fortunato and Mexican Chiapas cacao nibs. This beer is a trust fall of over-indulgence, the perfect chocolate counterpart to Fundamental Observation.

Frothy dark tan head; poor cap retention; no ring nor lace; no legs; black body with ruby edges; no legs on swirl. Chocolate and vanilla nose; a whiff of bourbon as beer warms. Taste follows nose; loads of chocolate/bitter sweet chocolate; vanilla on backend. Silky smooth feel; medium body, moderate minus carbonation; no warmth from 13% abv. Overall a tasty chocolate/lite bourbon impy stout, but, this is an expensive beer that is underwhelming for its price point.

500ml bottle split between four sample glasses. 2022 release.

Pours black with very little head, looks thick and syrupy, a drip on the side of the glass crawled like molasses, putting up a pretty respectable fight against gravity. Smell is mostly chocolate and sweetness. Basically smells like chocolate syrup.


Taste is sweet, chocolaty, with a slight cherry twist. (which might just be my brain struggling to describe the roasty bitterness's failure to turn the onslaught of sweetness). Vanilla is there, too. Boozy.

Mouthfeel is not as thick as I was expecting, though still pretty thick, and surprisingly has a little bit of liveliness (which might be lightening the mouthfeel a little). Overall...it's good, but it's too sweet and they leaned too hard into the chocolate to really do it for me.

A strong dessert beer, but I wonder if I should have chilled it. It’s a chocolate cake with vanilla lettering shoved into a glass, then topped with a shot of bourbon. Medium bodied, thick, a bit oily.
