hayduke (3561) - Eureka, California, USA - JUL 12, 2010
From a bottle purchased in York, England. Poured nearly black with a nice tan head. Good lacing. Rich nose of roasted malts with nuts. Medium body and rich smooth mouthfeel. Flavor shows some chocolate and the finish is bitter. Very well crafted, drinking. Hard to believe this is 8.5% as it hides the alcohol well.
