A New Series for Forbidden Root

The Divine Mud Series' first beer: Heavy Petalâ„¢

Randy Mosher


Heavy Petalâ„¢, an Imperial Stout, is the first in Forbidden Root's new single origin cacao series.  It offers a deeply fruity cocoa nose with dark, roasty undertones.  The flavor is rich and just a little sweet at first, leading to dry bittersweet chocolate notes and a contrasting nuttiness.  There is a long, clean fruity/floral finish with lingering pecan aftertaste alongside the crisp, roasted chocolate flavors.  Heavy Petal is best served cool, in a snifter.
