Bastille Day marks the release of one of our favorite beers, the Black Raven Brewery La Petite Mort.
This nutty brown ale is as pretty as the globetrotter it is served in. It is a big, boozy, yet balanced brew.
The guy next to me thinks it is too big and chewy in the mouth but I disagree. At 8.8% it is a big beer and that big mouth feel reminds you to sip and savor this Washington beer.
You wouldn’t inhale a prime rib and you be sorry if you guzzled this beer. Not just because of the headache tomorrow but because you would miss all of the nuances of La Petite Mort!
