Flying Fish Exit 13- Chocolate Stout
I ordered a bottle of Flying Fish Exit 13 Chocolate Stout from Queen Ann Wines & Spirits. The beer pours a deep black color with a frothy tan head that dissipates rather rapidly. The aroma consists of dark chocolate and espresso and a hint of vanilla. The taste is smooth and perfectly sweet with chocolate and toasted malts, perfectly smoked for this beer. The finish has a bit of vanilla sweetness and a coffee after taste lingers on the tongue. The alcohol content is 7.5% ABV. I’m not sure that I’ve had a smoother chocolate stout that had a wonderfully balanced smoked flavor. This beer is a must try if you can still find it.
