Poured a black color from the growler with aromas of cocoa, coffee, vanilla, rum and some oak. Flavors follow suit light sweetness up front with some chocolate and coffee, followed by some nice rum flavors.

500ml swingtop bottle. Aroma is red currants, rum, and cocoa. Flavor is surprisingly dry and tannic, lots of sweet rum and fruitiness, cacao, and coffee. Not amazing but has a good variety of flavor and doesn’t feel as sweet as a typical 10%er though it has booze flavor.

Black color, thick, with small brownish head. The strong roasted malt aroma has a nice fruity side, with a hint of tobacco, and alcohol. Smooth mouthfeel, full bodied; strong chocolate flavor, with moderate residual sweetness; the chocolate flavor is complemented and improved by some tobacco and less liquorice; correct bitterness.
Velvet chocolate. Great.

Thanks Ferris! Dark brown, rich chocolate, deep molasses, meaty biltong character, the some hop comes into the finish. Sweet, smooth, delicious. Really nice balance, touch herbal late.
