Pours with a thick tan head. Amazing aroma, rich coffee is dominant with soft caramel. The taste delivers, full body, covers the entire palet with smooth coffe, toffee, and roast. Very smooth, silky texture, and a wonderful dry finish that makes you want to take another sip. Bravo Burleigh Brewing.
