I first heard about this beer when I started the blog. Since I was really into Magic Hat beers at the time, I was sad that I couldn’t locate it. Fast forward to the other half finding this at Joe Canal’s and I was a very excited beer dork. Let’s see how it fared.
Style: American Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “In medieval times, the celebration of darkness and light was marked with great halls filled with smoke and mirrors. Gilded goblets brimming with seasonal brews were lifted to lips speaking a language no longer known. The present connects the past through the brewer’s art and a beer of utter darkness is born – Feast of Fools Raspberry Stout. Gather thy friendly fools for a round and celebrate the oncoming darkness with sweet ale and glee.”
Random: The cat managed to get his head stuck in the blinds today trying to attack birds outside the window. I had no words for this one, although I did get him out within a minute.
This beer poured with a one finger, tan head that was quick to dissipate and left no lacing on the glass. The beer had a black body with visible moderate carbonation. The nose was sweet with major notes of raspberry jam. The taste was overly sweet with raspberry extract and stout flavors came through after. I picked up roasted malts and light milk chocolate. It drank much lighter than expected. It had a thin body with high carbonation. The finish was long and sweet with milk chocolate and raspberry. This beer fell flat for me. At $9.49 for the bomber, this was an expensive disappointment. I wouldn’t have this again.
