At the whales tasting at Tom’s. Black with mocha brown head. Crazy espresso aroma - very condensed. Vanilla pod, a little bit of wood, a little bit of molasses, bittersweet melted chocolate. Tastes a little bitter coffee, coconut, vanilla, a little gunpowder, Ron Zacapa-like notes, caramel - but in a good way. Don’t remember when was the last time I gave 10 to taste. Full body, slightly fizzy, slightly alcoholic-boozy finish - but in a good way, also cocoa. This beer goes to 11. zvsn (2428) - ISRAEL - DEC 1, 2016

Pretty sweet, very complex flavors of chocolate, cocoa, coffee, vanilla, wood, dark fruits, rum, warming, finish is bitter and balanced. Full-bodied, smooth, oily and rounded mouthfeel. WOW!
