This was an extremely nice beer to drink. Full bodied and very much on the big and rich side, creamy mouthfeel with lots of malt ball and chocolate creme maltiness. Burnt bread crumbs, and a bit of roasted coffee come through as well, this would have been just fine being this malty, but the piney hops kind of throw it out of balance in the finish in my opinion. Still lovely to drink.
