Pint 9 shared poured a translucent dark brown color with tan head and kind of a slick lacing. The nose is huge sweet malts blended with toffee and dark fruits and what I perceived to be hints of dark chocolate. The flavor is incredible the alcohol burn through the nose with the dark fruits and toffee and sweet malts, this is blended so nice. Mild bitterness on the back end, this beer rocks it’s amazing.
