Great share with Brian and the boys in Boca. Deep brown pour with tan eroding head. Teh aroma is big roasted malts, graham cracker, vanilla, cognac, wood, dark fruits, and spiced meats. The taste is very flavorful with the roasted malts up front, middle is dark fruits and spiced meats with vanilla, finish is more of the cognac flavors and dark chocolate. Full body, chewy. Mild carb. Very good.
