Big big thank you to kappldav123 for sharing this stuff! My 40th US state. Pitch black in the glass, smallest dark beige head. Strong smell, dark berriefruity, choco, coffee, malt. Taste is surprisingly smooth and oily. Fruity like juice, some coffee, low bitterness. Roasted malt. Dangerous quaffable. Okay, also boozy. Some barrelwood. Mid sweetness. GREAT!
