Selin's Grove Snake Drive Stout
Selin’s Grove Snake Drive Stout on cask on a recent visit to Selin’s Grove Brewing Company. The beer pours a dark brown color with a frothy tan head. The aroma consists of toasted malts, chocolate, vanilla, and caramel. The taste is smooth and chocolaty with a nice toasted malt balance. A bitter dark chocolate finish with a lemon and pepper hop bite rounds out the flavor with caramel and vanilla lingering behind. The alcohol content is 5.5% ABV. The Snake Drive Stout was a well done dry stout with lots of bitter chocolate flavor. Having it on cask really brought out all of the flavors, including the light hop balance.
