Growler... This beer rocks!… Pours clear and nearly black with a miniscule, creamy, off-white head that’s gone in a flash. The aroma offers big-time mocha accentuated by toasted nuts and vanilla. Full-bodied and fatty with modest carbonation. The bittersweet flavor is of dark chocolate chips and fudge with a deeply-roasted black malt and espresso finish. Huge thanks to BBB63 for shipping this world class delight my way!
