Taste of a Gentleman: Six Point Diesel

DDB is Gentlemanly Productions’ resident food and beverages expert.  This former Undisputed Gentleman of the Year has a palate that can not be matched.  Over the years, many Gentlemen across the country have looked to him for insight on everything from pumpkin beers to tea and from steaks to salad dressings.  Today, he offers his take on Six Point’s Seasonal Stout

~[]~

This is Six Point’s winter seasonal from what I understand.  It also seems to have almost a cult following, which resulted in me having to go all the way to Rockland County to retrieve some so I could see what all of the fuss is about.

Appearance: Deep brown, almost black.  An over aggressive pour (my bad?) leaves a large tan head that lingers and laces on the way down.

Nose:  I have a bit of a cold, so really the only thing I noticed was some of the hops. (Ed. Note: Will someone get DDB some functional cold medicine? He does so much for us.  The least we can do is help him shake that bit of a cold.)

Taste:  It has some coffee going on, it’s also a bit hopped for a stout which was nice.  It finishes with a little bit of chocolate.

Overall, I get what the hype is.  This is a solid, drinkable, stout.  So much so, that I felt the need to tweet the brewer about how I could see myself downing a bunch of them.  If you come by it, pick it up.
