Kicking back after a heck of a week and trying something from a new brewery.

Tonight it's 10W-40 German Chocolate Cupcake from Hi-Wire Brewing in Asheville, NC.

Inspired by rich and decadent German chocolate cake, this extra special batch of our 10W-40 Imperial Stout boasts huge notes of cake batter, sweet cherries, pecan dust, and vanilla.
Poured pitch black into a Snifter with a medium sized, dark brown head. Smells of cocoa, coconut, and a little bit of roasty malt. All of the smells come through in the flavors and are accompanied by creamy lactose. I don't get much in the way of cherries though. Body is appropriately heavy and comes with a respectable 8% ABV. Quite a tasty brew!
