A friend was coming into town and told me well in advance of her arrival. Which means there’s a chance for someone I know who hasn’t yet had my beer to try it! But she doesn’t like IPAs at all.
So let’s make the Devil’s Mother again!
The nose is coco, like the powder, in a shift from the last batch. There is not a lot of sweetness present there. The beer itself is pleasantly sweet though and it finishes nicely, with an element of good chocolate ice cream in the mouthfeel. This beer doesn’t seem quite as hot as the last one. That’s definitely a positive.
While I liked this beer, my plan to get feedback didn’t go as well as I hoped. Ah well: more for me!
