Love this classic beer, but it just doesn’t taste modern or up-to-date anymore with its huge malt bill. Clean, but the base is sweet chocolatey malt and it tends to dominate the flavor profile.

Closer to 3.90. Can’t believe this recipe is 25 years old. And can’t believe it’s only 7.6% ABV. Great nose. Tasty but light for a pastry stout. Raspberry jam and a strong nutty flavor and a little black coffee. Could use a little more chocolate perhaps.

Soft and full mouthfeel, creamy and tropical. Juicy and mouth-watering, with citrus on top and just a hint of pepper underneath. Lots of pineapple, but with enough body to keep it in check. Really flavorful and drinkable, belying the 8% ABV.
