arminjewell (6434) - Hastings, Minnesota, USA - DEC 19, 2014
Pour out of 12 oz bottle, dark brownish black pour with lacing caramel head, aroma brought brownie, dark chocolate, coffee, hints of slight bitter spicy hops, slight cocoa powder, nice. Taste is a mix of dark cocoa, roast and coffee, some spicy and earthy tones, hints of brownie batter, finishing sweet. I dig this, nice mix of roast and sweetness, and unfortunate ashy flavor comes through at the end however.
