Enjoyed on tap at Slows BBQ in Detroit, MI while having some lunch with good friends. Very excited to see this on the menu. I didnít take tasting notes, but remember this being a very unique and complex dark ale with rich vanilla, raisin, plum, chocolate, and coffee profile. Would definitely have this again if that was a possibility, very much enjoyable.

On tap at Belmont Station (thanks for grabbing a spot early, Doug!). Colour... very dark brown with almost no head. Nose...sweet, roasty, toasty and chocolatey with cocoa mass powder and vanilla. Palate...big and robust with Dutch cocoa and baking chocolate to start. The next wave is filled with dried dark fruits, especially Italian prunes, cassis and zante currants. The finish is dry and sweet.
