otakuden (1783) - Vero Beach, Florida, USA - SEP 28, 2011
Appearance: murky blacks browns khakis, ohmy. Tannish head settles into a soft blanket of temptation. Swirls with lace.
Nose: chocolate bark, fudge, chocolate chip cookies dipped in melted chocolate, chocolate covered almonds. Madagascar vanilla beans, raw and unadulterated. Decadent. Cold French press coffee. Black chocolate covered graham crackers.
Palate: bracing bitterness of iced coffee and cold press espresso. Hint of dark fruits along the edges and underneath with tannic skin bitterness – unripe plums and dates. Very dry roasted nuts and espresso beans mingle together amidst a sea of dry brittle dark chocolate delights. Seamless marriage of very strong flavors. Brittle chunks of fudge.
Final Thoughts: thank you Stone for this beer, thank you Sierra Grille for the beer and the dessert (Stone espresso stout brownie with ancho stout gelato and spicy stout caramel), and thank you Laura’s family for mentioning this exclusive once in a vacation-time event. T’was meant to be.
