Breckenridge 72 Imperial Chocolate Cream Stout
My most anticipated destination in Denver was the new Alehouse at Amato's, run by Breckenridge Brewing. One of the beers I ordered there was the Breckenridge 72 Imperial Chocolate Cream Stout. The beer pours a black color with a thin tan head. The aroma consists of chocolate, toasted malts, and vanilla. The taste is smooth with lots of chocolate and vanilla, and a few underlyings of cream. The finish brings out toasted malts and oak. The alcohol content is 7.2% ABV. Overall, this was a smooth and delicious beer with a velvety mouth feel, which was very pleasant. I also highly recommend going to the new Alehouse the time you are in Denver.
