  • With the brew: Your Holiday Spirit
  • Comments: I am new to beer appreciation.  My short-list of favorite malt beverages includes Purple Haze, by Abita and Young’s Double Chocolate Stout.  I tend to prefer fruit sugar fermentation, so lambics and hard ciders are more my area of interest.  But what girl doesn’t like chocolate?  And chocolate cherries are a holiday must-have in our house.  This brew definitely had all the qualities that made it a find for my husband to proudly present to me.  Right from the pour the mostly chocolate, slightly cherry aroma greeted me.  As a chocolate covered cherry enthusiast it was a welcome and familiar scent. The head was smaller and did not last the entire beer. The bubbles were of average size (0.5mm - 0.7mm).  I had to go back to the bottle for clarification of whether it was supposed to be a stout.  When I think of chocolate beers, stout most definitely comes first to mind.  But the color was that of a dark copper wheat beer.  The aroma of a chocolate cherry cordial remained with every lift of the glass to my mouth.  I found the chocolate to be the dominate flavor on my palate, emerging near the back of my mouth.  The bitterness that I find with most wheat bears was present in the front of the sip.  Although the winter holidays were the backdrop of our tasting, I would also recommend adding this brew to Valentine celebrations.  I could easily see myself sipping this beer with some sort of molten confection.  All in all, it was a novelty beer that didn’t necessarily change my interest in wheat beers.   But it was a fun and adventurous find for this non-traditional beer drinker.

  2. I notice you are working with the exact theme as I. Just how did you manage to modify the size of the font? Mine are a great deal smaller than on your website. It is extremely challenging to view on a notebook. users online counter
