(En fût à Flights El Segundo): Un décadent amalgame de caramel, chocolat et nougat surmontés d’une touche fruitée, fumée et très légèrement soya. Avec la richesse de sa texture, c’est du gros calibre.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pitch black with a tan head. A rich whiskey and malty chocolate. The flavor is cocoa powder and rich malty whiskey. An incredibly smooth barrel aged beer that was really easy to drink though I heard it was better on tap.

Bottle thanks to Brian! Pours cloudy mahogany, small beige head, good lacing. Aroma is roasty, coca, pine. Flavor is light plus sweet, medium plus bitter, chocolate, pine cones, hints of whiskey. Pretty damn hot. Medium plus body, creamy mouthfeel. I honestly thought this was a black IPA.
