OK, my thirsty ones, we have entered the dark hole of beer. From now until about mid-spring, there's not much that excites me on the shelves or in the cooler. This year, I'd like to challenge us all to find some go-to winter warmers and bust up the beer sadness.
This is one from Breckenridge Brewery that I hadn't tried. I'm not sure how that happened since Breckenridge can do no wrong in my book. I was looking for something dark and smooth and that is just what I found.
From the website: "It's a bold, smooth-bodied concoction that oozes dark-roasted coffee aromas and flavors of espresso and semi-sweet chocolate. We round out these heady pleasures with a dose of flaked oatmeal for a creamy body and a semi-dry finish. Unforgettable."
The bottle says Dark & Dreamy and I'd have to agree. A perfectly good stout if I do say so myself. Went down easy, no bitter after-taste despite its 36 IBU's (International Bitterness Units). If you are a stout-lover, you won't be disappointed.
