“Good Nightmare Mekong: even your mama wants a taste, and she doesn’t drink. Imperial stout with coconut, coffee, and cinnamon added.
Pesadilla en un vaso. That means “nightmare in a glass”.
Brewed in collaboration with The Answer from Richmond, Virginia and Cigar City Brewpub from Tampa, Florida.
Final Rating: 4.4/5
look: 4 | smell: 4.5 | taste: 4.5 | feel: 4.25 | overall: 4.25
Poured from a 22oz bottle into a Cigar City snifter glass. Acquired as an extra in a trade.
Pours a deep brown, nearly black body with a one finger light brown head that reduces fairly quickly to leave a ring of foam. No lacing.
Aromas are sweet and dessert-like – vanilla and light coconut upfront, caramel and sweet chocolate I’d almost guess this was barrel aged due to the sweet bourbon-like vanilla and caramel notes.
On the tongue is sweet chocolate vanilla upfront, followed by coffee and maybe a tinge of coconut, burnt sugar, finishing super roasty which I really dig. No sign of cinnamon. Mouthfeel is medium body, silky and velvety. A little light. Easy drinker with low carbonation.
Overall a solid brew – I would have liked more cinnamon or coconut, but it was tasty for what it is.
