Evil Genius Pure Genius Chocolate Stout

Rating:

This bottle of Evil Genius’ Pure Genius Chocolate Stout tagged along with the unearthed bottle of Lake Placid Nippletop that a co-worker passed along to me back in November. It too was part of a gift pack he received a couple of years ago, long forgotten in the back of the fridge. And, much like Lake Placid’s bottle, this one has also managed to hold together well enough, though I can’t imagine it being all that much different now than when it was fresh.

As indicated on the label, Pure Genius is a stout brewed with chocolate — a lot of chocolate. Aside from a bit of grain and coffee that makes an appearance once you start drinking, it’s a pretty one-dimensional beer. It runs its course right down the middle of the road in a rather unassuming presentation, which I suppose is better than being too cloying considering the strength of the cocoa here.

This bottle of Pure Genius has, as stated above, held up pretty well. I can’t imagine it offering up much more than it currently does, however, as it’s a pretty straightforward beer. I’m sure some of it has faded over the year or so that it’s been sitting in that fridge. Still, that didn’t stop me from drinking it.

Appearance

A thin cap of light brown foam falls swiftly to a decent crown around the surface of Pure Genius. The beer is dark cola brown in color.
