onceblind (3965) - Denver, Colorado, USA - JAN 1, 2014
Clear dark brown with a medium foamy beige head. Nose is sweet and nutty and chocolaty with a touch of dark sweet biscuit, like a cocoa flavored hard cookie. Flavor is a reflection of the nose; loads of delightful nuttiness, some sweet earthy cocoa, and a smooth crisp bready finish that’s a touch sweet.
