I’m still missing the mark on color.
That’s the biggest disappointment, honestly: it’s just not as light as it should be for the style.
And like the last beer, it’s a bit too bubbly for style: the champagne yeast kicking up a storm again.
But, the beer is chocolatey without being too sweet, despite what the ABV says it doesn’t taste too potent, nor does it seem to have that level of impact on me. It’s got a lighter, drinkable quality to it-and although the champagne note on the finish is throwing things, it’s not bad. Just out of place.
