Modern Times Beer City Of The Dead Stout
Hello beer lovers and welcome to another edition of the NorCal Beer Blog's brew review.
Tonight’s featured beer is Modern Times Beer City Of The Dead Stout. I picked this bottle up at The Wine Club in San Jose (here). They have a small craft beer section, but they have an incredible selection. If you're anywhere near The Wine Club go visit them and tell 'em Mark from NorCal Beer Blog sent you!
From the Modern Times Beer website: “City of the Dead is a big, full-bodied stout with lots of chocolate undernotes dominated by the bourbon barrel aged coffee. The beer is dosed at 1 pound per barrel, and has a distinctly rich, bourbon coffee aroma and flavor. As the beer warms, the bright bourbon aroma settles in and the coffee base really shines. This is the first commercially bottled barrel aged coffee beer in the world (that we know of!)”
Let’s get started!
Appearance: Pours black with a dense brown head and lots of lacing.
Aroma: Dark chocolate, coffee, vanilla, caramel, roasted malt, toffee, some oak and bourbon.
Taste: Dark chocolate, coffee, toffee, vanilla, caramel, roasted malt, some oak and bourbon.
Overall: Rich, creamy and easy to drink, Modern Times Beer City Of The Dead Stout is enjoyable. This 7.5% ABV offering is certainly worth a try.
