Poured from a bomber, picked up earlier in the month at the brewery. Dark, dark brown with a medium dark tan head. Nose is mostly chocolate with a hint of fruit. Nicely balanced taste, sweet with a bit. This is full bodied with a nice oily texture. Very nice sipping beer.

bhensonb (12945) - Woodland, California, USA - JAN 15, 2014
Bomber from Whole Foods in Folsom, CA. Pours very dark brown with a slight dark tan head. Aroma is chocolate and yeast. Med + body. Flavor is dark chocolate, smooth burnt malt and some hints of yeast. Trying to get some fruit ester, but the chocolate is pretty strong. There’s a bit of heat hitting the back of my throat, but not much. Pretty solid and tasty stuff.
