4.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 18/20
UPDATED: NOV 12, 2016 A big, dense light tan head with top to bottom lacing. A near black body. An appealing nose featuring chocolate, cream, roasted caramel malt and a touch of booze. A big molasses, chocolate and dark berry burst leads off the taste profile. Slightly burnt butter, booze, fruity hops, malt, and raisins blend in underneath. A touch of vanilla and coffee round out the blend. Love the roasted elements and they grow and blend along with the butter as the taste grows. Didnít expect an epic from Fullers!
