Since I’m considered essential personnel, I’m still going into work everyday. One of the small slivers of positive things about this whole pandemic is that my commute has been cut in half. We’ve been working extended shifts and I’ve been hitting my daily goal of steps before I leave for work everyday, so I’m exhausted and relaxing on the couch. Let’s see how this beer was.
Style: American Double/Imperial Stout
Trivia: According to the brewery website, “Mocha Wednesday makes its return! The perfect follow-up to Black Tuesday, this beer adds layers of artisan dark chocolate and bold coffee flavors, especially when consumed fresh, thanks to cacao nibs from San Francisco-based TCHO and freshly roasted coffee from Mostra Coffee.”
Random: Val bought me TCHO chocolate years ago and I really enjoyed it. It had a nice flavor and the dark chocolate was pleasantly bitter.
The beer poured with a one finger, light tan colored head. It dissipated slowly and left some lacing on the glass. The body was dark brown, almost black. There was no visible carbonation. The nose was filled with roasted malts and coffee and dark chocolate. There was some alcohol as well. The taste was remarkably smooth with lots of dark chocolate, roasted malts, and dark coffee. The alcohol was there and brought some heat, but it wasn’t overwhelming. The body was thick and chewy with light carbonation. The finish was lengthy with coffee and dark chocolate. This was a really strong beer, but had a lot of good flavor. I would definitely have it again.
