I’m getting to the home stretch of end of quarter. The exhaustion is setting in and the finish line is almost in view. I have absolutely no plans for Sunday. I will most likely end up mowing my lawn, but I am not setting an alarm clock. Anyways, beer time.
Style: American Double/Imperial Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “On a pilgrimage for immortal craft beer we tripped on these heavenly drops of amazingly overwhelming aromas, a thick fudge-like body, pitch black color and obviously only made in limited amounts. And the taste…even more jesus!”
Random: This was brewed at Companyia Cervesera del Montseny, Spain.
This beer poured with a half a finger of tan head that dissipated slowly. Some lacing was left on the snifter. It left a quarter of an inch of crown on top as well. The body was a dark brown color with no visible carbonation. The nose was huge. It had roasted malts, licorice, smoke and black coffee at the end. The taste was intense as well. I picked up smoke and roasted malts up front, then some bitter chocolate and espresso. The licorice was there as well, but hit right at the end of the sip. The body was thick with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy with roasted malts. This definitely didn’t drink like 12% either. long finish. This was $10 for the bottle, which broke down to $.83 per ounce, which is definitely expensive, but this beer was outstanding. I didn’t like it quite as much as the coffee version, but this is worth seeking out.
