12 Beers of Christmas - Day 12

On the twelfth day of Christmas, Lynch's Irish Tavern brings to you Bell's Brewery Black Note Stout. This rich and decadent stout is the perfect way to end our 12 beers of Christmas celebration.

Bell's Brewery is known for its exceptional craft beers, and Black Note Stout is no exception. This beer is a blend of their Expedition Stout and Double Cream Stout, aged in freshly retired oak bourbon barrels for months.

With a deep black color and a thick tan head, Black Note Stout is a sight to behold. The aroma is filled with notes of roasted malt, dark chocolate, and a hint of coffee. As you take your first sip, you'll be greeted with flavors of bourbon, vanilla, and caramel, perfectly balanced with the bitter sweetness of dark chocolate and roasted malt.

The mouthfeel is smooth and velvety, with a full body that coats your palate. Despite its high alcohol content of 11.2%, the alcohol is well-integrated and doesn't overpower the flavors. This beer is meant to be sipped and savored, allowing its complex flavors to unfold with each sip.

Pair this stout with rich desserts like chocolate cake or creamy cheesecake for a truly indulgent experience. The dark and robust flavors of Black Note Stout will complement the sweetness of the desserts, creating a harmonious combination.

As we reach the end of our 12 beers of Christmas, we hope you've enjoyed this journey through different styles and flavors. Bell's Brewery Black Note Stout is a fitting finale to this festive celebration, offering a luxurious and satisfying beer experience.

Cheers to the 12 beers of Christmas and may your holiday season be filled with joy, laughter, and great beers!
