20160412 — We reviewed RedRock’s Bobcat Brown yesterday and chose it because it was an example of good craft beer in Salt Lake City. We were impressed with the range that RedRock brewed—almost every one was professional and enjoyable. The top of the line for us, though, was their top of the line – the Drioma Imperial Stout.
—-Ellie and I have a saying: “It’s Hard to Brew a Bad Stout” that we abbreviate to HTB on our tasting sheets. That said, it’s not easy to make one rise above the crowd, even by a bit. Drioma does, and it’s also staggering (sorry) to find a beer like this in the land of lightweights.
—Drioma presents rich deep dark chocolates, and some rich dark fruits, with a hint of fruit joining the festivities by the finish. The chocolates seem to grow darker as it drinks, but there are also flavors of dark roasts and dark sugars. It was desert for us, and a very welcome one.
