Fortnight Brewing Company
English Breakfast Stout (With Cold-Brew From Larry's Coffee)
American Double/Imperial Stout
North Carolina
12oz, 4-Pack
A little less than a finger of deep tan to brown hue, even surface, not much retention, hardly any stickiness to the lacing. Black, opaque liquid, light orange aura, can't really see any bubbles through the liquid. Nose of German chocolate cake, cafe au lait, black licorice, brioche, plenty sweet but the texture remains sleek, hint of poached plum to prune fruit. Medium-bodied, has a tingly prickle during the mouth entry, uncommon firmness. More roast to the coffee accents here, dough and pie crust but that roastiness trails off swiftly. Cola bean, licorice and anise, more herbal sweetness than sugary sweetness. The cherry, plum fruit is mild and does not interrupt the general dryness. Smooth enough and inoffensive in all ways, easy drinking and sessionable.
3 out of 5
