COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
We toned down the hops a bit to allow cocoa nibs to contribute some pleasing bitterness, while vanilla notes from the oak combine with the cocoa to create an aroma and flavor akin to a gourmet chocolate bar. A dash of cayenne keeps things lively, adding just a bit of heat to the finish. A Yeti for summer? Hell yes.

RasmusOtt (2764) - Aarhus, DENMARK - JUN 19, 2017
Bottle thanks to bursprak. Pours black with a dark brown head. Aroma is pretty earthy with notes of chocolate, slight smoke, old sweet Malts and butterscotch. Pretty obvious that this is past its prime. Taste of roasted malts, dark chocolate, slight spice, some oak, earth and milky chocolate. Very old school and a bit past its prime, but this is still pretty solid.

Svart med høyt lys brunt skum. Lukter kakaopulver, sjokolade, tørket frukt, svisker og noe trevirke. Middels fylde. Salt lakris, middels bitter, minner meg noe om black IPA. Kaffe, mørk sjokolade og sitrusskall.
