Oh So Good! Mocha Obscuro by Peabody Heights Brewery

Mocha Obscuro
There is a lot to be thankful for when the gods shine down and have St. Patrick's Day fall on a weekend. (Yes, Thursdays count as a weekend!) One of those extra goodies, of course, is two days of extra sampling of beer and this year I got to try Mocha Obscuro by Peabody Heights Brewing of Baltimore, MD in Woodbury Kitchens.

Mocha Obscuro is attempting to become one of the few beers that is to achieve an Imperial or Double Stout classification. This is akin to a Russian Imperial stout and it is very rare to get this right. The malt and the hops have to be roasted to near perfection and sorry to say, it just does not happen very easily. A bit over-roasted and the whole beer tastes burned. But Mocha Obscuro is done just right. The malt and the hops are both done to perfection and it feels good going down. But as a double stout, it is about how it goes down slow, and that is when is goes down oh so good! Try it out and you won't be disappointed!
