monkeychugg55 (1025) - Joliet, Illinois, USA - APR 10, 2016
Rating #1000 Dark brown pour with a tan head. The aroma is loaded with chocolate, roast, raisin/fig, and some caramel. The flavor is about the same, some lingering earthy and floral hops and coffee on the back end. Nice viscous body and mellow carbonation.

Aroma is whiskey, some chocolate and raisin. Flavor is strong whiskey, raisin, and some cherry. Strong bite, this may need to age a few years to take the edge off.
