Mother Earth Silent Night 2012
Mother Earth Silent Night is an American Double/Imperial Stout aged in oak bourbon barrels. This review is for the 2012 vintage aged one year, opened on Christmas Day 2013. I’m getting a decent amount of mild char and roasted malts, mild chocolate and coffee, a bit of mild bourbon, just a hint of dark fruits and licorice. The body of this beer is a bit thin for my tastes, but not offensive. This might be one of those beers better consumed fresh, I would have liked it a little more if all those tasty notes were bigger. Still, it is a very good beer worth seeking out.
