Cool Springs Early Riser Espresso Stout
650 ml. that says donít age, but has no indicator of bottling date or bb date. Also says 8.2% instead of 6.2% indicated here. I was told at the checkout with this one that the brewery doesnít bottle anymore, so donít know how old this one might be. Pour is ebony with a frothy, boiling head that would have been a slow gusher from the bottle without constant attention. Strong nose of espresso with cream and semi-sweet chocolate. Flavor is the same mix with some ash, berry and charred toast. Medium body has way too much fizz but a tasty balance.

Murky bronze, with a ring of foam. Huge white wine aroma, with some some rustic, grassy notes. Taste is a little vinegary, in a good way. Also, s good deal of woody flavors, too. Kind of like a sour white wine, but in a good way, if that makes sense. Bottle 437 of 883.
