Off Color Coffee Dinosmores

Posted: December 8, 2016 in American Double/Imperial Stout, Off Color Brewing, Reviews

Tonight’s selection is a beer that I was very excited to have. I love smores and if you combine a beer with smores and execute it well, I’m incredibly happy.

ABV: 10.5%

Style: American Double/Imperial Stout

Trivia: According to the brewery website, “We worked with Metric Coffee this for this years Coffee Dinosmores. Looking to highlight and expand upon the roasty, smokey aspect of the beer we chose a single origin bean from Sumatra – Ibu Rumani with classic dominant chocolate, pipe tobacco and cherry notes because big, dumb stupid flavors in the right proportions can be delicate and nuanced as well”

Random: One of the breweries we go to by the house has smores for dessert.

This beer poured with half a finger of tan head that dissipated quickly. It left no lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown, almost black color with no visible carbonation. The nose had roasted malt, dark chocolate and marshmallows that provided some sweetness. It had some smoke and a touch of alcohol. The taste was superbly balanced. I picked up notes of dark chocolate and heavy cream up front. The smoke came through next with vanilla and marshmallows. and sweetness. It had a thick body with some booze with moderate carbonation. The finish was lengthy with dark chocolate. This was an expensive beer at $8.99 a bottle, which broke down to $.75 per ounce. This beer was outstanding. Even though it was an expensive beer, I would get this again and give it a year or so to age.

Untappd Rating: 4.5/5.0
