Deep cola-brown body under a thick, mocha head. Pleasant smoked/roasted aroma along with rich cocoa and light alcohol. Texture is dry yet milky while the flavor is part Kayo and part Ovaltine. Finishes with a burnt bitterness which morphs into a chocolate covered cherry. I regret buying only one 12 oz. bottle. ~~~~~~~~ Single bottle from a "mix-a-six", Woodman’s, Carpentersville, IL.

Bottle, pours black with a tan head. Chocolate malts, nice and roasty with vanilla. Medium bodied, creamy with a drying finish, which has lengthy roast and hop bitterness, with great balance

Paladares (135) - Madrid, SPAIN - NOV 7, 2015
Botella. Negra opaca. Muchísima espuma. Aroma a regaliz y caucho quemado. Muy curioso. En boca es estupenda. Mucho equilibrio de dulce y amargo. Café, caramelo, cereal tostado... y muy presente el regaliz pero muy bien conjuntado y muy muy refrescante. Pide y pide y pide más. Gran cerveza
