New beers for the weekend.
Greetings fellow beer lovers:
Dan Chacon has put together his "Email Beer List" for the weekend and many of you have already received information about the following beers in your inbox. For those of you who have not...here is some information on a couple of the tasty beers from the list:
Santa Fe Chicken Killer- This beer is interesting in the fact that it is somewhere between an English and American style barley wine. The pour is a cloudy dark copper color with a two finger beige head. The aroma is full of bready malts, caramel, fig and citrusy hops. On the palate you get the same as you do on the nose with none of the flavors overpowering the others. The body is a little lighter than most barley wines with moderate carbonation. This is a well balanced barley wine! Not too sweet, not too hoppy. 10% abv
Was- $5.99 Email- $5.49 22oz
Val Dieu Grand Cru- This Grand Cru may be a little less well known than some others out there, but it definitely competes with the best of them. It pours a murky brownish prune color with a thin off white head. Aromas of brown sugar, figs and you guessed it prunes are all very present. You get a lot of the same on the palate as well as some biscuit like malts and light hints of nutmeg lying underneath. The body is medium heavy with a bit of viscosity to it and surprisingly the carbonation is moderate making it very drinkable. 10.5% abv
Was- $9.99 Email- $8.99 750ml
