Best Quote During Tasting
We all know the song, man. Please don't sing it.
|The aroma isn't overpowering. What I do get is a fair amount of chocolate, coffee, and some sweetness that is most definitely vanilla and a bit of toffee. The description says tiramisu, but it's much more earthy and roasty, which doesn't go as well with the description.|
|Deep brown with burgundy highlights and a slight tan head. Head dissipates rather quickly leaving just a bit of tan lacing on the top.|
|Like the aroma, the deep flavors of chocolate and coffee are the defining flavors coming through in the forefront. Lingering behind them are the sweeter elements of vanilla and toffee. The lactose plays nicely with all these flavors, and adds some creaminess to the party. The alcohol is present, and adds a fair amount of warmth. Once warmed up there were hints of hazelnut that really added to the quality of the beer.|
|Medium body with medium carbonation. Got thicker as it warms up, which really helps a lot of the sweet and rich flavors that are present in the beer.|
|Do yourself a favor if you are drinking this one, warm it up a bit. I found the beer to be a lot more complex and enjoyable as it came closer to room temp. Not to say it was bad at the slightly colder cellar temp I had it at, but the beer became ultimately more complex as it warms up. My biggest knock against the beer is that it is billed as tiramisu in a glass, but it's overpowered by more of the richer flavors rather than the sweet most would expect. Needless to say, it is a good beer to have around during the holiday season, and might be a good one to bring to a holiday share.|
