Today was a nice lazy Sunday. I spent it reading a book about an eagle…and enjoying my daily brew. The title of the book is An Eagle Named Freedom. It is a good story about a man whose life is changed by a rescued eagle. If you are into reading and enjoy feel good stories…give it a go.
Beer #119 is Cadillac Mountain Stout by Bar Harbor Brewing Company. From Maine comes this American Stout. This beer has an ABV of 6.7%. Of note, the mountain this beer is named after, Cadillac Mountain (Acadia National Park), is the highest point within 25 miles of the east coast of the United States. It towers to a lofty 1528 ft. OK, maybe not so lofty compared to the mountains out west but pretty impressive nevertheless for being on the coast. I suggest if you have never been there, and are in the great state of Maine, take a detour to Acadia National Park and hike to the top of Cadillac Mountain. Unless you are a sissy, then you can drive a car to the top. Either way, the views are magnificent.
I pulled out a pint glass I haven’t used in quite some time…a glass from Macs Grill in Auburn, Maine. I figured it would be a good glass to pour todays beer into being both are from the state of Maine. Cadillac Mountain Stout poured a lovely black with a nice tan head that left some awesome lacing. The nose was really nice, it consisted of dark roasted malts and dark chocolate. The taste really nice too, roasted flavors up front followed by those nice chocolate flavors. There was a nice coffee/chocolate aftertaste that I absolutely love. It had a nice medium body, was quite creamy, and was low on carbonation. This was very drinkable but I took my sweet old time with this enjoying every last drop.
Another Kingly brew and a fine stout indeed.
