Shiner 106 Birthday Beer Chocolate Stout

A beer for their 106th year (for some reason there was no 105 release), this 5.0% ABV chocolate stout is from the Spoetzel Brewery in Shiner, Texas, maker of Shiner beers.

The beer pours black with an inch of light beige foamy head. The aroma is like a very moist dark chocolate cake with a touch of dark rum in it. The taste follows the aromas, lots of chocolate, but in a chocolate cake way, touch of sweetness and alcohol. The beer drinks smooth, light, but not too watery considering the considerable flavors. There is no bitterness on the finish.
