I managed to do something today that I haven’t done in forever. I slept until noon. When I woke up, I felt a bit guilty because I thought I was wasting the day, but I must have been really, really tired. I think it’s been at least a year since I slept this late. Anyways, I picked up this brew last week. Let’s see how it went down.
Style: Milk/Sweet Stout
Trivia: This beer uses one type of hops (Fuggle), 4 types of malts (Pale, Munich, Caramel and Victory) and California Ale yeast.
Random: We’re watching “House Hunters: Where Are They Now?” It could be my new favorite version of the show.
This brew poured with a two and a half finger tan head that was slow to dissipated and left slight lacing on the pint glass. The body was a dark brown color with moderate carbonation visible. The nose was really fragrant with notes of vanilla, dark chocolate and milk. There was also some cocoa powder to it. The taste was really impressive. I got strong notes of dark chocolate, coupled with cocoa powder and malted milk balls. There was a bit of sweetness and cream to it as well. Vanilla flavors came out as the beer warmed. The body was really creamy and medium thick with moderate carbonation which really complemented the beer. There was a very slight alcohol burn to it at the end as well. The finish was long with vanilla and cocoa powder. I really enjoyed this brew. It was really flavorful and really smooth. If you see it at your local beer store, it’s definitely worth a try.
