10,000 Foot Stout, Eske's Brew Pub & Restaurant, Taos New Mexico
Back to the dark beers! Well, if you are ever in Taos, drop by the small but tasty Eske's Brewing Company. We sampled two beers, first, their 10,000 Foot Stout....
It pours opaque with a thin tight head.
The aroma is chocolate with deep roasty malt and mildly sweet.
It has a full body with deep dark chocolate. It is roasty with a building sweetness (cherry). There are oak tones as well...
The aftertaste reveals the bitterness with cherry lingering on the tongue making a slight sour tone appearing at the very end.
