This was another super funky brew from them.My second and hopefully my last. It looked very nice but after their Barley Wine I was cautious. Shoulda’ known. Muddled and misguided. Needs alot of work.

Bottle from Secret Santa. Good roasted malty aroma with a mild sweet chocolate. Black body with tan head. Was little hard to get a good description of the flavor on this one. I had a couple of coffee beers before this one. Had a good medium sweet roasted malt presence noticable. Smooth enjoyable brew on the palate.
