Tonight’s selection is one that I wasn’t sure about when I picked up. I thought it was going to be a little gimmicky, but I thought it was worth a shot. The beer store by my job has a giant pick-a-six section and this happened to be in it.
Style: American Double/Imperial Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “When I was 12 I dreamed of becoming a pastry chef. Call this a creative outlet. Thick, rich and excessively decadent, this beer aims to bring back childhood memories. Brewed with aromas.”
Random: I’ve always wanted to go to Sweden.
The beer poured with a three finger, tan head. It dissipated slowly and left a lot of lacing on the glass. The body was a dark brown that was almost black, with no visible carbonation due to the color. The nose was filled with sweet scents. There was a lot of brown sugar and molasses along with chocolate malt and sweet, pecan pie. There was a note of peanut butter mixed in. The taste was also incredibly sweet. It started with sweet chocolate along with molasses and brown sugar. There was a pecan note as well, along with lots of booze. It was very dry, yet thick with lots of carbonation. The finish was sweet and super sticky. I picked up a can for $5, which came to $.42 per ounce. When I first started drinking this beer, I enjoyed it, but once I got a few sips in, the booze and sweetness was overwhelming. I wouldn’t rush back to have this one again.
