3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
So a strong ale w/cacoa nibs. Dark brown and a bit of haze. Sweet chocolatey character, with a touch of nuttiness. Quite sweet, a touch sticky and then this really strong boozy/barrelly element comes into it. Big rich boozy finish...this is a finisher, and the big bottle for something like this is borderline insane. All told the balance isn’t that great with all the alcohol.

The taste is roasted malts, dark coffee, dark chocolate, mild earth, mild bitter hops, very faint vanilla and a bit of fruitiness. Medium bodied, low carbonation, slight lingering bitterness. Good beer.
