4.2 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Growler shared at The Bruery - big thanks to Sam! Pours oily, black-brown with a thick, brown foam head. Heavy coffee on the nose with secondary notes of dark chocolate and tangy wood. Medium sweet flavor with more dense coffee, chocolate syrup, bittersweet baking cocoa, chocolate cake. Full bodied with fine carbonation and chewy texture. Rich dark chocolate character to finish with more hefty coffee, dirt and chocolate cake. Robust and decadent but still balanced and exceedingly tasty.
