The following blind tasting was done on at the spur-of-the-moment. We (my buddy Lorenzo and I) decided, since we have been on a Stout kick as of late, we would put our palates to the test. Can we guess some of our favorites among the flight or will a newcomer emerge? Without further ado, let the tasting begin… Bottle #1: Guessed Green Flash Double Stout - Actually Bell’s Expedition Stout Appearance: opaque, black, , cinnamon head (little) Bouquet: dark chocolate, hints of coffee, anise, prune, Taste: hops, bitter (overpowering), malt, dark coffee, prune Mouth feel: chalky, foamy, good weight, lingering, spice, Overall: 82 Bottle #2: Guessed Bell’s Expedition – Actually Sierra Nevada Narwhal Appearance: black, light head retention, low carbonation, lacing Bouquet: hops, malt, raisin, yeast, slightly muted due to complexity, dark fruit Taste: coffee, hops, malt, toffee, semi-sweet chocolate, nutty, sweet Mouth feel: spiciness, foamy, smooth, dry, refreshing, clean, lingering Overall: 88+ Bottle #3: Guessed Terrapin W&B – Actually Green Flash Double Stout Appearance: dark, good head retention, watery, bubbly Bouquet: coffee, caramel, toffee, hops, malt Taste: coffee, caramel, malt, hops, Mouth feel: lightweight, oily, smooth, watery, crisp Overall: 87- Bottle #4: Guessed Founders BS- Actually Terrapin W&B Appearance: dark, good head retention, light carbonation, amber Bouquet: COFFEE! dark chocolate, caramel, brown sugar, Taste: coffee, chocolate, caramel, malt, brown sugar Mouth feel: frothy, light, clean, lingering, creamy Overall: 93+ Bottle #5: Guessed Sierra Nevada – Actually Founders BS Appearance: dark, opaque, light head, foamy, light head retention, bubbly Bouquet: coffee, caramel, sweetness, chocolate Taste: coffee, malt, kind of bland - inconclusive Mouth feel: thin, Overall: could not rate (palate shot!) No matter the scores, we had a blast tasting these great beers. I'll keep it to a minimum of 3 or 4 next time and not drink as much of them as not to kill my taste buds or palate. Have a great Sunday, gents!
