In this special beer blog, we are going to get into beer from a team of New Belgium Brewery and Perennial Artisan Ales. It is part of New Belgium Brewery’s Lips Of Faith. The brew is called Salted Belgian Chocolate Stout. If you read my earlier beer blog posts on both of these craft breweries, you know the history of both breweries. If you have not, please, read them to get to New Belgium and Perennial Artisan Ales. Let us get into this stout.
It has a jet black color with a creamy tan color head. The aroma has a creamy milk chocolate with slight salt notes. The taste has a slight salted creamy chocolate notes. The aftertaste has a dry salted notes. It is kind of drinkable beer.
Here is a description from the beer bottle:
Dessert is best poured and the brewers at Perennial agree. We dreamt up a beer that would bring together chocolate sweetness, Belgian yeast, deeply roasted malts and just the right shake of salt to pour a creamy stout worthy of a cherry on top.
Here is their website and twitter addresses:
Closing, I will say New Belgium has been hitting some home runs of late between their everyday beers, new seasonal, and high-end brews. I am a pretty big fan of Perennial Artisan Ales when I lived in Chicago. I am still a fan but I can not get their beers here in Michigan. They have not made it here. I was pretty excited when I saw they teamed up with New Belgium Brewery. I love the salt and chocolate mix in this beer. It reminds me a creamy milk chocolate with sea salt notes on it. This is a great liquid. I highly recommend this beer. Go get some! Drink it! Enjoy it! Metal it! \m/
