NOW TAPPING: Founder’s Nemesis 2010

Leon’s Full Service is tearing it up.  In addition to Southern Tier’s Choklat, Leon’s has Founder’s 2010 pouring.

Style: American Barleywine

Taste Expectations: Smell is alcohol and hops.  Taste is complex, while not being heavy.  The alcohol shines for sure, but not in an overwheming way.  Caramel malts, chocolate, even coffee have been used to describe this.  Try it and sort it out!

Availability: 12 oz/4 packs.  No draft.  Est. retail — 17.99

12% ABV

NOW TAPPING: Southern Tier Choklat

The first sighting of Southern Tier’s Choklat isn’t in stores, it’s at Leon’s Full Service in Decatur.  Choklat is an imperial stout released by the Lakewood, NY brewery seasonally in November, but is making an early appearance now.

Choklat is an understatement when it comes to the chocolate aspects of this beer.  If you have had Mocha, the chocolate you smell is HALF of what is in the brew.

Beer Rundown:

Hops: Chinook, Willamette
Malts: Caramel Malt 60, 2-Row Barley, Barley Flakes
Extras: Bittersweet Belgian Chocolate
