Year of New Beer: Baba Yaga Grand Cru, Ethereal Brewing Co (Lexington)
Written By: Dion on 04/28/2021
When I heard that bottles of this still remained into the evening on Baba Day, I headed straight to the taproom after driving home from Cincinnati to grab one. So much on the nose...chocolate, caramel, vanilla, and dark fruits. On the tongue, this manages to get even more complex. Still a ton of chocolate, but roasty malts arrive along with a subtle bourbon. Oak and vanilla blend nicely with burnt sugar notes before a nearly fudgy finish. This is absolutely outstanding.
