Adtoit Theory Double Barrel Death of Cthulhu (Ghost 565)

What the brewers say

“In the darkest depths of the ocean slumbers the Great Old One. So transcendent is he, so free of the bondage of rules and regulations we so desperately adhere to for meaning, that we are drawn either toward his cult or his destruction.”

What our panel thought

Aroma: “Rich and vinous, hints of dark cherry and licorice, with warming alcohol and whiskey notes. Really interesting and complex.”

Flavor: “The stout is pretty sweet overall—chocolate, caramel, candy sugar, and some dark fruit. The finish is quite boozy and bitter enough to keep it from being cloying.”

Overall: “Fantastic aroma and, given the strong boozy barrel character and bitter finish, it’s still relatively well balanced. Basically a strong, barrel-aged breakfast or pastry stout. Great aged character, lots of dark fruit maltiness. Super tasty.”
