McMenamins Beer (All Years) — photo 26 of 126: A sample of Chocolate Cream Ale (on nitro) which I tried at the McMenamins West Linn Pub in the southern Portland metro area suburb of West Linn. According to the brewer:
“Is this the beer list or the dessert menu? Sometimes I don’t even know. But, what I do know is that this beer is delicious, smooth and sweet. And with twelve pounds of Ecuadorian cocoa nibs and twenty five pounds of chocolate malt, this beer will make you go cuckoo for cocoa beer.” Measurements: 4.9% ABV • 15 IBUMy notes from that day read: “Tasted more like coffee (which I don’t like) than chocolate ... I would not want an entire pint of it.” May 2017. Camera used: Olympus OM-D E-M5 with Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f/2.8 zoom lens.
