Brewery : Carton Beer : Cupid Style : American Stout / Stout Variance : Brewed with Roses
8.5 / 10
Roses are red, violets are blue. Poems are hard…Beer. So it’s Valentine’s day and right now you are either taking to social media to post something up about how amazing your significant other is, how rough your hands or fingers are going to be by the end of the night, or about how you don’t need anyone else in your life to get validation because you are a strong single individual. The last one is complete bullshit and the only people who post that are bitter single folks because let’s be real, no one wants to be alone on Valentine’s day so just get off your high horse and spend your night with Cupid instead. I feel like I’m going to catch some shit for that last sentence but sometimes the truth hurts so in the great words of Triple H, Shawn Michaels, and X-Pac, SUCK IT! I do find it super weird that people rely on a naked little flying boy to shoot them with a bow and arrow to make them fall in love but to me that sounds more like two sex offenders looking at kiddie porn while that child commits homicide and shoots someone with a fucking arrow. Not cool Cupid, not cool. This has a solid malty chocolate flavor to start off almost reminiscent of a Whopper before some roast-y and smoky notes mix in before ending with more chocolate and an interesting rose flavor that follows through minutes after your sip is finished. Most people like receiving their chocolates and roses separately but Carton figured “why not mix them together and just get it over with” and it works perfectly. If you are surprised by this combination than you clearly don’t know shit about Carton because they are always creating super unique brews and they are doing it damn well so make sure you pick some of this up before it’s gone regardless of your drinking level. Now get out there and love somebody!
