Briess Cherry Wood Smoked Malt
vanilla, maple, smoke
Rich and delicious! This is the best dark brew I’ve had in a long time, I hope they bring it back!
What an incredible flavor profile!! Sweet, chocolate, coffee, doughnut!! Arguably the best tasting stout I’ve ever had, leaded or unleaded!!
An NA beer this good can simply not disappear. I sure hope it returns. My former husband used to say I only liked a beer if it was as dark as maple syrup...indeed this one is!
MNNABEER has tried most of the stouts in the USA and this one immediately jumps to the top of the pile along with All Out by Athletic, Galactic Extra Dark by Big Drop, and even Tsathoggua the NA Imperial Stout from Eastlake in MN (RIP). Donut Kill My Vibe (which I wanted to name "None More Black") has a thick mouthfeel, solid sweetness, hints of cake and frosting and some oaky smokiness. I don't think it'll be long before they brew another batch of this.
I like it, even the pronounced sweetness rarely tasted in other “pseudo stouts”. It will be a nice accompaniment to decadent desserts, and beside a crackling fire on a cold winter’s night.
Only wish that the can design didn’t look so much like it contains a colorful soda pop.
