The wonderful Walking Man Brewery and Pub in Stevenson Washington is now offering their Walktopus, Batch 600 Strong Ale. At 8.8%, it's worth the trip.
Pours deep, nearly opaque.
The aroma is mild mild malt.
It has a big malt vanilla flavor. It is mildly sweet and very creamy in the body. It is a bold beer with a lot of pronounced malt, but keeps it's creaminess throughout the body into the finish, making it fairly easy to drink.
The aftertaste is malt and roasted peat. Mildly sweet at the very end.
