4.1 AROMA 9/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Bottled, thanks tytoanderso! Near black, no head. Aroma of chocolate liqueur. Sweet and huge bodied with soft mouthfeel and almost no carbonation. Port-like with bourbon, milk chocolate and coffee. The sticky sweetenss works well, it feels edgeless and really warming. Very talented beer - I didn’t think it was possible to make a 19.5% beer this good!
