BEER INFO

Brewed by:
Flying Fish Brewing Company
New Jersey, United States

Style: Foreign / Export Stout

Alcohol by volume (ABV): 7.50%

Availability: Limited (brewed once)

Notes / Commercial Description:
For our sixth stop on our journey to celebrate New Jersey, we travel to Exit 13. This exit is probably best known for it’s view of the Newark airport, but it is also home to the Port of Newark-Elizabeth Marine Terminal, one of the busiest in the world. Elizabeth was also New Jersey’s original capitol. Many food products come through the port, including the Belgian chocolate we’re using for what we’re calling an import/ export stout.

This fuller “export style” stout gives a sturdy base for the rich chocolate flavor. More than 600 pounds of Belcolade chocolate went into this brew. A mix of imported and domestic malts are highlighted by roastiness from dark wheat. An Irish ale yeast and Pacific Northwest hops combine to create an excellent dessert beer as well as one to share in the cool weather with friends.

750mL bottle poured into tulip

Dark, charred brown color with opaque bleakness. Crop of tanned head slowly fades out, leaving some spots of lacing dotted around the glass.

Chocolate, bittersweet chocolate and chocolate malts. Roasted dark malts and a hint of alcohol warmth.

Slightly syrupy chocolate runs throughout the profile. Hints of bitterness with dark roasted malts, molasses and a soft detection of caramel and vanilla. Finishes warm and chocolatey.

Medium body, decent carbonation, bubbly and a little flat/thin on the tongue. Probably should have opened this one a long time ago but it got a bit lost in the shuffle of bottles in my fridge/cellar, although this still feels extremely one-note.
