Opaque and black chocolate in color with dark tan foam and corresponding wrung around the edges. Roasted black patent, espresso melded with black licorice and broiled semi-sweetened chocolate slabs kick off the aromatic anthem. Wholesome semi-sweet chocolate meets delicatessen chocolate milk. Acidity is low, but the distance between the flame, acorn and chocolate slab is even smaller. Roasted barley and fried espresso grinds lead the dry, bittered fledging. Laudable carbonation, and quite a body. Torched fudgie brownies with engrained mocha beans get fanned with a crème brulee torch for an extra special touch.
