Alphadelic (2147) - Portland, Oregon, USA - AUG 2, 2015
26/1/12 bottle on this date - Black, oil looks. Delicious chocolate and coffee aromas are thick and fly out of the glass. There is an underlying roasty/smoky malt bitterness there too. Thick and sweet and smooth. No appearance of the alcohol at all. It’s delicious! Very mild, like an iced mocha of some description. Oh yeah, there’s a little heat in the throat after a few sips. I’d buy it again. For certain. Damn.
