One great thing about Christmas is that my wife loves stouts. So Every Christmas I buy her a nice collection of stouts I can find around Miami. Of course the greatest thing about Christmas is my five-year-old daughter’s reaction to what Santa brought her for being a good girl throughout the year. Of course I get to share beers with her and then share my thoughts on them with you.
The first stout we tried on Christmas afternoon was Fort Collins Brewery, Double Chocolate Stout, coming in at 8.1%abv. It is dark brown topped with a medium tan head. The nose is packed with dark roasted malt, espresso and dark cacao. The palate is like the nose with floral hops and the cacao magnified on the finish. The mouth feel is more medium than full and the high alcohol doesn’t show through so drink slowly and enjoy with some smoked cheeses or dark chocolates, my wife’s favorite. For people looking to get into Imperial Stouts, this is a good start, not to strong or bitter, so a good place to start.
