GlassBrass440 (235) - Christchurch, NEW ZEALAND - MAR 30, 2015
Pours jet black with a whipped tan head. Aromas of chocolate, coffee, peanut shells, and caramel. Flavor is roasty with mild, fruity yeast esters. The finish is decidedly dry and roasty with chocolate and espresso. The mouthfeel can only be described as powdery. This is a classic for a reason.
