New Belgium and Perennial Artisan Ales have collaborated to bring us a drink that’s both decadent and desirable, brewed with belgian yeast, roasted malts, and a shake of salt to balance things out. The 9% ABV, pitch black, sweet chocolate treat arrives on Monday (Sept 28th) from two respected breweries! Price is TBD, of course.
Here’s what you can expect:
- VISUAL – Pitch black, with thick tan foam and firm lacing.
- AROMA – Rich, with lots of cocoa/baker’s chocolate aromatics. Heaps of roasted and rich dark malts. Lovely fruity hints of Belgian esters, banana, pears and plums.
- FLAVOR – Sweetness upfront, balanced with a mild bitterness and a touch of salt to express sweetness.
- MOUTH FEEL – Smooth lip smacking and mouth coating. Warm, boozy and slight lingering astringency from the salted chocolate.
- BODY – Full-bodied
Prepare yourself to enjoy!
