EACH BEAST A GOD
Inaugural Release, Cellared 1+ year
Double Stout with Coffee
This gem of a beer has been gracefully aging away in my cellar now for a little over a year. Fresh, this hefty stout is an epic tribute to smooth chocolaty flavours and roasty coffee notes. This is the inaugural release of Each Beast a God, and also one of the first beers released by Third Moon Brewing. Cellaring has done this beer wonders as you'll read in the tasting notes below. Enjoy.
Pours a thick and opaque black with a mocha brown foam. Its appearance is reminiscent of an espresso.
The first thing that hits me is rich and smooth dark chocolate. There’s a slight sweetness to it and a slight roasty character as well. I’m presuming the roast comes from the coffee. There’s also a woody cherry flavour buried in there that I start to pick up as the beer opens up.
A sip of Each Beast a God is bold and refined. This beer has definitely evolved and mellowed out over time as expected. I get deep dark chocolate notes with a rounded and smooth malt character. Carbonation is on the lower side but enough to elevate the flavours and still leave a relatively clean finish on the palete. The booze is well hidden behind a wall of deep and dark flavours. I still pick up that roasted note but I’m not sure if its from the coffee or the malt. Maybe a combination of both?
This big stout is right on the money. There’s a LOT to like here with a scaled down complexity that focuses on dark chocolate and roast flavours. I think the only thing that could possibly elevate this beer even more would be barrel aging. Whiskey specifically, maybe rum?
Dessert baby! It’s freakin’ pumpkin pie season bro. A glass of this beside a slice of the hearty orange stuff is a small piece of heaven. The pumpkin flavours perfectly compliment the chocolate found in Each Beast a God. Pairings don’t need to be complicated, they just need to word.
