Springdale Brigadeiro

So, Val and I are finally on vacation. We decided to spend a week in Cape Cod, and I’m making sure that we have enough time to relax. Val is taking a nap in the room and I’m outside blogging a table. Anyways, this beer is one that I was very excited to give a shot. It’s been awhile since I had a breakfast stout and I wanted to see how this one was.

ABV: 7.5%

Style: Oatmeal Stout

Trivia: According to the brewery website,”Brazilian coffee, cacao, oats and milk sugar are all parts of this complete breakfast stout. Roasty, rich, and smooth. (N.B. dairy allergy) 7.5%ABV”

Random: I love me a good breakfast stout.

The beer poured with a huge head. It was four fingers high and light brown in color. The body was a dark brown that was almost black. There was no carbonation visible. The nose was filled with roasted malts and smoke from the coffee. There was also a dark berry note as well. I picked up some sweetness, which I assume was from the sweet, milk sugar. The taste had a significant creaminess to it. It also had dark chocolate along with roasted malts and smoke. The booze did not make an appearance, but it had a nice body to it. There was significant carbonation. The finish was sticky and lengthy with roasted malts. Since this was a gift, I’m not sure how much it was, but this was a solid beer. I would definitely have this again.
