Decadent is a big American Brown Ale. It is brewed with 10 different malts and 10 different hops (“Deca-“ meaning 10). Layers of rich toffee, caramel and chocolate flavors from the malt form the backbone to this complex beer. This version was aged on VSOP and oak.

Appearance: dark brown, fine beige head, layers of drippy lace,
Aroma: dark chocolate aroma balanced with oak and earthy hops followed by a sweet brandy character,
Body: creamy body that turns light and airy like a merangue pie,
Flavor: rich sweet chocolate and brandy flavor, light balancing bitterness adds some restraint but leaves it sweet, bitterness slowly grows pint by pint,
Overall: like a liquor filled chocolate candy,
