Year of New Beer: Double Home Sweet Home, Fifty West Brewing Co (Cincinnati)
Written By: Dion on 11/11/2019
Seven hours ago, I was mowing grass. Now, with the temperature plummeting and the snow falling, this winter warmer hits the spot. Nutty and earthy on the nose with plenty of bread crust, cured tobacco, and pie spices. The tongue is greeted by a dessert-bread and caramel malt, backed by hints of cinnamon, coriander, and nutmeg. The marshmallow adds enough creamy vanilla to allow this to evoke the sweet potato casseroles that are so ubiquitous this time of year. At 9%, it nails the "warmer" part of the style as well. Good stuff.
