Pretty psyched to have the week done with. I’m finding the new job a little more stressful than I expected, and the weekend downtime is much needed. Tonight we went out for dinner (Chinese). Now we’re chilling and watching the movie Funny People. I skipped dessert and instead I’m having a Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout, which I have been told is pretty awesome.
The aroma is of boozy chocolate and vanilla. At 10% ABV, I’m not surprised that I can smell the alcohol. The beer is a thick dark black. The head is more brown than white. Some lacing, but not a ton.
I didn’t have to wait a long time for this to warm because I had it in storage rather than in the fridge. I chilled it for 90 minutes or so before opening it. The taste isn’t too far from the aroma. Dark chocolate is the main flavor. Vanilla accompanies it. Strong flavor of liquor. It’s well balanced though…not particularly sweet or bitter.
Brooklyn Black Chocolate Stout is super smooth. Basically no carbonation.
