Mocha Diablo by Dave's Brew Farm
American Double / Imperial Stout
9.30 % ABV

Sweet stout with a combination of three peppers, American lineage yeast and, American hops. Starts out with sweet, roasted and chocolate malt flavors and then a subtle heat builds in the back of your throat.

Fresh growler: Black gloss settles immediately into the goblet as a large muffin top of dark cocoa hued foam lathers up quickly with a dense foamy might. Eventually the crown of brown foam Sloths its way to leave a heavy collar and skim across the top while some sporatic stringy globs of lace stick across the glass. Looks great and very appetizing.

Aromatics have a Lusty boost of warm, soothingly rich, and decadently yummy milk chocolate. Very much like mocha cream or chocolate cake with a touch of peppery spice and cold espresso to it.

Diablo! Wow! Like the sin of Gluttony, this is a dangerous indulgence. Yummmm...Lots of smooth, silky, chocolate of all kinds melt in your mouth and sinks across the palate. Silky chocolate milk, fluffy cocoa bits, melted milk duds, espresso chips, mocha ice cream, and black currants all set a superb girthy tone for the peppery spice about to take place. Ahhh, what a a Wrath of warming peppery spice emerges mildly, yet Greedy enough to grab some palate tingling attention. One heck of a great mix! If you have ever had gourmet dark chocolate that has peppers added, this is the "LaBrewatory" version.

Body is quite full, hearty, wholesome, and smooth; hell, most stouts would be filled with Envy to call themselves this smooth. Silky, soft, lush, thick, fluffy, lofty, and wondefully warm with peppery spice to finish it off.

With Pride I can say this is quite possibly one brew to be reckoned with among the many big troublesome stouts out there that may bring a sin or 7 to mind.

Served In: Goblet
