Good day BAs! Looks like another cool day here on the tundra of NW PA - there's definitely a chill in the air! Today's New Breakfast Beer is from a brewery that's been hit-or-miss for my taste buds: Chocolate Volcano from Heavy Seas Beer. Purchased from Franklin Beer Company, Franklin, PA, 27/07/22 for $ 12 (Including tax)/six-pack of 12 oz bottles ($ 0.167/oz). On room-temperature shelf at store and stored at 37 degrees at home. Reviewed 15/08/22. Note that I use DD/MM/YY protocol. Stamped “BEST BY SEP0822” on the rear label. Served at 55.2 degrees in a hand washed and dried Jester King Snifter. Final temperature 59.7 degrees. Appearance – 3. First pour – Amber Brown (SRM 18), barely translucent. Body – Brown (SRM 20), opaque. Under direct light, extremely tiny bubbles are coating the glass. When rear-lite, some light penetrates at the edge. Head – Small (Maximum 1.3 cm, aggressive center pour), tan, high density, short retention, receding to a ring of tiny bubbles constantly being renewed by effervescence (No crown per se) and an anemic small island acting as a cap. Lacing – None. Aroma – 3.25 – Roasted malt and chocolate. No hops, no yeast. Flavor – 3.25 – Minor amount of roasted chocolate malt and a touch of coffee, no hops, no yeast. Slightly bitter (Think coffee). No ethanol (9 % ABV as marked on label) aroma or taste. Extremely weak lower gastric warming. No dimethylsulfide or diacetyl. Palate – 3.25 – Medium, slightly thicker than water, lively caressing carbonation. Final impression and summation: 3.25 Basically a weaky flavored stout porter; certainly not the expected “dessert” stout. Flavors are flaccid and the ethanol is barely noticeable. The price point, however, is exactly on … point. Rating 3.24, rDev -14.5% Oops - sorry - the review posted rather than the photo - try again! Looks like we may be heading to Grand Rapids for a quilt show and some interesting food at Brewery Vivant later this week.
