I think the QC may have been off on this one which is a shocker considering it is SN. But it is the beer camp and they proabbly were hanging by a thread with it. It has some rotten fruit flavors to go with a buttery and cocoa-y stout.

3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Bottle @ home, picked up at Wilbur’s Foco. Pours a deep brown appearance with a nice, dark brown head. Toasty, oaty, light coffee, dark chocolate, roasty, earthy aroma. A bit tangy, lightly boozy, burnt, roasty dark chocolate malty, caramel, vanilla, a touch smoky flavor. Not a huge fan of the flavor, it’s a bit overly bitter, but not bad.
