4.6 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 19/20
The only minor negative about this beer is the thin fizzy head that quickly disappears. Cocoa and more aroma. Taste starts coffee the a big burst of cocoa powder and the faintest bit of chile. Toasty, roasty darkness and other delights. Wonderfully oily, coating the mouth with lingering deliciousness.
