The other half is on her way home from Target and we’re planning on getting a quick bite to eat. I’m trying to bang this review out before we have to leave for dinner. We stopped at Uno’s on a Sunday and they had this on draft. This has been compared to some of the best bourbon-barrel aged stouts on the market, so let’s see if it was as good as the hype.
Style: American Double/Imperial Stout
Trivia: According the brewery website, “Sunday Morning Stout, 11.3% ABV, is an American Imperial Stout aged in bourbon barrels. The result? A beautiful ebony pour with a large, creamy, off-white head that lasts and lasts. The aromas of roasted coffee and bourbon awaken your senses while their flavors blend with hints of chocolate, roasted malt, vanilla and caramel. The perfect cap to a Saturday night or start to Sunday morning.”
Random: If I started off with this beer on a Sunday morning, I wouldn’t make it to Sunday afternoon.
This beer poured with less than half a finger of tan head. The head dissipated instantly and left light lacing on the glass. The body was black with no visible carbonation. The nose had a lot of roasted malts with espresso and baker’s chocolate. There was some warm oak as well. The taste was awesome. It had notes of espresso, vanilla, roasted malts and dark chocolate. Some bourbon came through with oak at the end of the sip. It had a thick and chewy body with moderate carbonation. The finish was long with some alcohol warmth, espresso and chocolate. This beer was just outstanding, and in my opinion, the best offering from Weyerbacher. Get this now.
