This is barely a beer. It’s not the strongest I’ve had in this challenge, but it’s close (I think 18.0% was tops), and it’s massive. The aroma is coconut and chocolate, and the coconut was a little unexpected. That’s especially true because it wasn’t really present in the flavor, where chocolate and coffee dominated with a bit of vanilla. There was definitely a bit of alcohol burn on the finish, but way less than you’d expect at this strength (I’ve had liquor that wasn’t any stronger than this). Avery does a lot of things well, but these massive stouts are probably what they do best, and this one is no exception. Delicious!
I added a counter on the sidebar for how many days it’s been since there was a stupid Trump tweet. I don’t imagine I’ll have to update it very often.
