Bottleshare thanks to Daniel 9029340932740, or whatever... Pours black with tan head. Aroma is rich chocolate, coffee, mint, and richness. whiskey and sweetness at the end. Taste is sweet, chocolate, mint, vanilla. I don’t get whiskey up front, but it does change the beer for the better, Certainly makes the base beer better. In the end - really good.
