Bottle… O’sS&BS-I-T-YVBThrowdown… Dark, burnt orange ale with a small, creamy, white head. Cocoa really stands out in the aroma. Medium-bodied and slightly creamy with fizzy carbonation. The flavor is mildly nutty and leans on the bitter side of balance. The finish is crisp and moderately bitter. Kudos to whoever brought this beer to the Throwdown!
