JMerritt (1894) - Macomb, Illinois, USA - JUN 17, 2015
On tap at Buffalo Philís in the Dells. Very dark brown, pretty much black, with a frothy, light brown head. Very rich hazelnut aroma with light cocoa, mild coffee and a little vanilla. Nutty sweet flavor is almost peanut buttery in its thickness, and cocoa lends a slightly earthy finish. Quite good!
