Bison Organic Chocolate Stout
Today I'm drinking Bison Organic Chocolate Stout brewed by Bison Brewing in Ukiah, California. The label talks about organic and sustainable and carbon offsets. Buy one if you're interested. The label also displays the beer's silver medal from the 2005 Great American Beer Festival. Nice.
Very dark, roasted, nutty chocolate aroma, but on top of all of that was a seriously prominent coffee scent, like you just walked into a coffee shop. Flavors are similar with a strong roasted chocolate and burnt coffee everywhere. A bit bitter, yet still creamy. Even a little hoppy. Hints of vanilla poke here and there. A bit thin and the carbonation was pretty low, though not a flat beer. The 5.0% alcohol was not detectable. The finish is dry and some of the roasted coffee lingers behind for quite a while. Personally, the roasty burntness got a little old about half way through the bottle, but I bet plenty of people would really like that. Worth a shot. Check it out.
