New year, more beer.
How's that for a resolution.
2012, for me, was the year I rediscovered beer. The craft beer movement has been around for awhile but in the last 5 years, it's exploded. Last year, I decided to get on...and it's been a magnificent ride.
So why stop now?
There are still thousands of beers I haven't even heard of, let alone tried.
So the beer of the day rolls in in 2013...and we start with one of the midwests most popular brewing company.
Look-Dark and thick with a finger of head.
Smell-Rich with dark fruit flavor with a malty backbone.
Taste-The dark fruit is right on the lips and remains as it opens up in the mouth. Chocolate joins the party at that point.
Mouth-Full bodied and a bit hotter than I expected (and wanted to be honest). The chocolate comes out even more on the swirl which was delicious.
Overall-At almost 10%, this is definitely a sipper. Like I said, I wish the alcohol was more toned down. The dark fruit and chocolate flavor is blended well and outstanding though.
About Dark Truth:
Throughout the ages, man has been fascinated by the quest for hidden knowledge, the search for the secret to transforming the elemental into the extraordinary, the simple into the sublime. Ladies and gentlemen, we present for your consideration this exotic, inky concoction, the almost magical creation of our modern day alchemists who have turned humble grains—barley, wheat, rye, and oats—into black, liquid gold. Layers of complex flavors slowly emerge from the glass: espresso, roasted fig, crème brulée. Belgian yeast provides a plum-like fruitiness, noble German hops reveal spicy, herbal notes, while the rich, velvety mouthfeel mellows to a dry, smoky finish.
