Central Waters Nineteen is such a fantastic, undersung gem of barrel integration

If we are talking about beer that taste in a weight class much higher than they currently swing, the @cwbrewing anniversary series is an excellent example of power to weight ratio. The 19 is exceptional and offers such a robust profile of barrel character and roast but with a lightly bakers chocolate body that never outstays it’s saccharine welcome. It’s that precise handling of the malt to barrel throttle that makes these work so well and feel oddly Narke/european in execution. You can and will finish the entire bomber and it doesn’t dominate your evening, it provides a light tootsie roll ambiance throughout. Just another adjunct-free, tightly sewn little macrame of djarum cloves meets lightly burned brownies. Imma take a corner piece and scrape the pan just watch.
