A life just as ordinary

Just like you, but different

Beer – #49 – Renaissance – Craftsman Chocolate Stout

Renaissance – Craftsman Chocolate Stout, Brewed by Renaissance Brewing in the style of a Stout, in Blenheim, New Zealand

Expecting dark, Expecting Chocolate, and hoping that it pours with head.

500Ml of a 4.9% ABV  beer in a bottle that says pint, and there I was thinking I was making it up, and that 568ml is a pint. Brewers privilege.

It pours like a thick liquid, definitely dark pitch black, and I was kidding myself if I expected a head. I really have to figure this out.

There is no aroma that I can resolve, but the taste is all there. A complete range of chocolate, coffee, a little burnt stuff, lots of bubbles.  Quite subtle, and full of intrigue. There isn’t a long taste to this though, it’s all on the palate and then it’s all gone. Mind you each mouthful is it’s own reward and I’ve got no problem with that.

Arbitrarily though this is about 8 from 10 arbitrary things from an equally arbitrary number. It’s ok, it’s very ok, but it’s sort of muddled in the taste but I’m not going to turn this away it you’re buying. Of it’s kind it’s a winner, if only I could pour it with a head I could have arbitrarily given it higher marks.
