Philly Beer Week Wrap-Up
As most already know, I was in Chicago for a portion of Philly Beer Week. I'll touch on what I did out there in a bit...
Appears a pitch black with a small tan head that quickly fades out into a mild cap. Scattered bits of lacing are left around the glass.
Smell is of molasses, herbal tea, chalk, black grapes, spicy black and dried red pepper.
Appears a murky brown with mahogany edges and a light beige head that quickly fades out into a mild collar.
Mouthfeel is sticky, effervescent up front, sugary, gummy with tar and a chewy, lip smacking sting.
I was told by my buddy, Steve (aka hopdog) that I missed a killer time at Capone's for the highly anticipated Odell event, as shown here by our fellow beer hound, Brian, who runs I Am Beer Wise.
A quick peek back at what I experienced on the Chicago trip during Philly Beer Week...
