    I'm going big tonight. In fact, this may be the highest ABV beer I've ever tried but I'd have to go back through my tasting notes here to see for sure.

    Tonight I'm having a collab between Short Throw Brewing and, a brewery I haven't had anything from in a while, Evil Twin. This is Even More Nobility Imperial Stout.



    It's no secret that Jeppe from Evil Twin likes to do it big, and that's the attitude we took with Even More Nobility. We took his Even More Jesus stout approach and flipped it over our Low Brow Nobility stout. Then we did it big by adding amounts of toasted coconut and maple syrup that approach ridiculous. But we're good with that. Huge dark chocolate Mounds meets maple glazed Long John vibes.
    Poured the blackest of black into a Snifter with a smallish dark brown head. In addition to the highest ABV beer, this may also be the most black. Has a sweet aroma with a good bit of chocolate and maple combined with roasted coconut and a hint of coffee. LOTS of coconut in the flavor accompanied with sweet maple and chocolate. The body is so heavy it's downright chewy () and matches the whopping 15% ABV which is expertly hidden and only really comes through in a finishing warmth. If you didn't know how much of a punch this packs it could mess you up pretty easy! () A really fantastic brew!

    Sadly another weekend comes to a close, here and gone.

    I'm going to close it out with one purchased alongside last night's review, another from Grainworks - It's Peanut Butter Chocolate Time

    Internet veterans will get the name and can art!



    (I actually took this pic since all the ones out there sucked )

    Contains: Peanuts, lactose.

    Where ya at? This luscious milk stout is made with real peanut and cocoa to bring home the magic of everyone's favorite combo. It's Peanut Butter Chocolate Time! There ya go!
    Poured black (not as dark as Even More Nobility!) into a Snifter with a moderate tan head. BIG peanut butter smell with milk chocolate. The same goes for for the flavor. This is not at all complex but you're getting exactly what's advertised! The body is medium-heavy and this clocks in at 7.4% ABV. Pretty tasty brew and another good showing from Grainworks!

    With the lactose, was it a sweet stout? (Not a fan of the Milk Stout genre.)

    Which one would that be?

    I actually like milk stouts pretty well though sometimes they don't like me.

    The first measurable snow of the season seemed like a good time to pop open some Rusty Rail Snow Flyer



    Poured black into a Snifter with a large, tan head. A definite chocolate and hazelnut aroma. Flavor is a bit on the light side with mostly chocolate and only a little hazelnut. Some sweet malt. Body is on the thinner side. ABV weighs in at 5.5%. Not bad at all.
