In this special beer blog, we are at a another tapping party at Ram Brewery. The beer is their Nefarious Russian Imperial Stout. If you read my earlier beer blogs, you know the history of this brewery. If you have not, please, read the first part of that beer blog. Let us get into the beer.
This stout has a jet black color with a tan color head on it. The smell is of chocolate to it. The taste is a creamy chocolate to a little coffee notes. The aftertaste is a dry coco. It is a sipping beer.
Here is a description from the brewery:
Nefarious Nelson is a full-bodied, extremely malty ale with some hop bitterness. The very dark color and complex unique flavorsare a result of caramel, chocolate, and coffee malts and a substantial amount of roasted barley. This very robust, rich, smooth beer is about 7.0% ABV.
Ram’s Grand Reuben #504: Corned beef piled high, havaril, sauerkraut, horseradish cream and thousand island on rye.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I had a chance to drink a great beer, eat good meal, and play some beer bingo. It was a great time like the norm at a Ram Tap Party. This stout is a hoppier stout than the North Coast Stout. This is a pretty good beer. I really enjoyed drinking it. I just wished it was tapped at the Wheeling location. If you are in the area, go and try this beer while checking out this brewpub. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
