3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Thanks, Zeswaft, for identifying this as an AKA for Jeff’s Dirty Little Secret. It poured out thick, dark brown, and headless. It smelled of roasted malt, some chocolate, and a light berry fruitiness. This much have been aged as the only hop characteristic is a mild bitterness that enteres the flavor near the finish. Pretty good brew.

I guess this is the same as "Jeff Evans’ Dirty Little Secret (Winter Warmer)" from NotLA 2007 in chicago. It was a good beer. Tasted bourbon aged to me. Lots of stout character...chocolate malts. not a lot of hops but some underlying citrus. Strange beer. taste is a lot different than the aroma if i remember correctly.

Draught at the brew pub. Cloudy chocolate brown color with an off white head that laced the glass. Attractive flowery, grapefruity hop aroma and flavor accented by a bit of alcohol and a malty chocolate backbone. Delicious.
