22oz bottle -
So my Raiders lost a tough one today against the Bills, 38-35. A thriller no doubt. To help ease the pain of that loss, was a few outstanding beers and this was one of ’em. Not quit porter/stout season, but this one was outstanding, even if it was 93 degrees outside.
The beer pours out an oily black body with a creamy, dense 2" thick head with great retention. Baker’s chocolate, anise, mocha, and tree bark in the aroma. Dark chocolate, light smoke, coffee/mocha, with just a right amount of black patent/ashyness without being acrid. Super creamy mouthfeel really rounds out the awesomeness of this beer. Top notch.
