What do you think about when you hear the words “bourbon barrel aged weissenbock brewed with Belgian yeast”?  Me too, so of course I was excited to try La Petite Mort (the brief loss or weakening of consciousness, or, the sensation of orgasm as likened to death – I’ll go with the former) from Central Waters Brewing Company of Amherst, WI.  My excitement over this Belgian-style strong ale was well founded and supported with cold, hard evidence.  Not too cold.  About 48 degrees.  La Petit Morte is dark brown with a russet cast and the decent 1/4″ head lasts a good while.  Whiffs of bourbon, chocolate, heavy cream and vanilla high-five your nose holes and congratulate you on your wise beer choice.  Mort’s texture (sure, Mort, we’re like family now) is smooth and there is just the right amount of sweetness, with hints of coconut and cocoa powder.  The sweetness is a good counter measure for the bitterness in the finish.  Perfect balance.  Excellent!
