Central Waters / Local Option La Petite Mort Style: Hybrid Ale Brewed at: Central Waters Brewing Co. Amherst, Wisconsin ABV: 9.05% Suggested Serving Size: .33L weiss glass Serving Temperature: 50oF Web: http://www.localoptionbier.com http://www.centralwaters.com/ La Petite Mort is a Belgian inspired Weissenbock brewed as a one off collaboration between The Local Option and Central Waters Brewery in Amherst, Wisconsin. A bourbon barrel aged version of La Petite Mort will be available in spring 2012. When Central Waters decided to open its brew house for its first collaboration beer, Chicagos Local Option was the obvious partner in crime. The resulting brainchild, La Petite Mort - a Belgian inspired Weissenbock maintains the traditional characteristics of its Bavarian forbearer, with the added complexity of Belgian ale yeast. La Petite Mort is dark amber in color; maintains a rich, full-bodied mouth-feel augmented by caramel; mild and dark fruit. Rounded out by an unostentatious bourbon driven aroma from brief bourbon barrel aging, La Petite Mort is a complex ale, a marriage of distinctive styles, and an orgasmic experience for the taste buds that revel in its glory.

Bottle. Poured clear dark brown color with an average frothy light brown head that was mostly lasting with excellent lacing. Moderate to heavy dark fruit, yeast and vanilla wood and bourbon aroma. Medium to full body with a smooth texture and flat carbonation. Medium to heavy complex sweet flavor with a medium to heavy sweet finish of moderate to long duration. My expectations where exceeded.

Pailhead (6539) - Rochester Hills, Michigan, USA - NOV 14, 2014
On tap: The aroma consists of moderate chocolate, brown sugar, bourbon, and vanilla. Its a dark brown with some orange highlights and a two finger beige head that has good retention before eventually fading to a thick film. There is a good dose of webbing left on the sides of the glass. The flavor starts with a quick dose of dark fruit, banana, raisin, and light brown sugar. The finish has bourbon, faint sour oak, and a touch of vanilla. Its medium bodied with mild carbonation and a slightly sticky mouthfeel.

Bill Becker (972) - Casper, Wyoming, USA - SEP 13, 2014
A pitch black pour with a 1 finger head of tannish foam. Big notes of bourbon in the smell with some roasted malt, chocolate, vanilla. A lot going on. Bourbon up front in the taste but theres a milkshake like sweetness here that I find welcoming to take my taste buds "mind" off the bourbon. Id call it full bodied. A big and warming brew. This is very good.

FROTHINGSLOSH (7621) - GREENSBURG, Pennsylvania, USA - SEP 11, 2013
From the September 2013 3R6P tasting +++ Sampled from a 750 ml brown bottle this beer poured a hazy very dark brown color with a medium sized foamy tan head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was funk, anise, coconut, sweetish malts and a boozy rum presence. The flavor was tangy, malty and toasty with notes of black licorice, coconut, port wine, bourbon and chocolate. Amazingly complex with flavors that come in waves. Very long flowing finish. Moderately full bodied and smooth. Marvelous.
