I'm all caught up and posting early this week as I'm going away for the weekend. I had some great beers this past weekend, the best of which was Adroit Theory Moment of Impact
Description: Smells pretty boozy, which is going to happen at 12% ABV. You don't notice that at all in the flavor though. Dark chocolate and coffee dominate, leading to a somewhat bitter, ultra-dark stout.
What you should know: The trend of strong stouts these days seems to be super sweet dessert beers, but this is an old school Russian imperial style. It's definitely bitter, but in a coffee/dark chocolate way, not an imperial west coast IPA way.
Recommendations: Try to find yourself a beer that leans away from the sweet trend this weekend. You might remember why beers were all that way only a few years ago.
