rondphoto (2545) - Lakeside Park, Kentucky, USA - NOV 28, 2014
bottle @ Party Town / Florence KY --- Opaque brown/black with a good 3/4" beige head cover, a wall of lace. Aroma of malt and chocolate. Taste is milk chocolate malt that grows until hops make a timid entrance on the swallow. Malt takes over again, moving the chocolate milk to a long sweet finish. This is a big brew, and an exquisite brew, well worth the effort. Highly recommended.
