Grand Teton Black Cauldron

Grand Teton Black Cauldron

Just got back from class. Had a test tonight. Went well (I hope). I was the second person done, which either means I’m really smart, or I’m really dumb!

Back at home, I’m watching the Bruins. It will be the first game I get to watch from beginning to end. My wife is (mostly) being a good sport….it won’t be long before she’s losing her mind due to constant sports on TV. Next week I go to my first Bruins game of the season and I’m STOKED to go.

Celebrating hockey and completed tests wouldn’t be proper without a beer. The weather is starting to get colder again, and it feels more like October again. Time to break out the stouts I suppose. Tonight it’s Grand Teton Black Cauldron.

This is a big old imperial stout. 8% ABV. Chocolate smells start things off, followed by a face-melting roasted bitterness. I’m sure that it would sweeten up significantly if I let it warm up, but screw that…I’m on a mission to finish this puppy. My mouth, beaten into submission, is basically numb to how roasted this is. It tastes like biting into a cacao nib or something along those lines. They should call this a chocolate stout.

It’s pretty tasty, although I wouldn’t recommend it to someone just getting into craft beer – flavors are too bold.
