From notes. Enjoyed at Doug’s abode on August 03. 500 mL bottle. The pour is a dark, dark brown with a lighter brown head and a couple spots of lace that fall off slowly. The aroma is really good. There is a lot of sweet malt and heavy chocolate here. A light oakiness behind it really ties in a sweeter molasses component. The flavor is much of the same. The chocolate and a heavy oak throughout with a hint of vanilla and roast on the back end. This one is balanced and lovely. The mouth feel is nice and medium bodied with a soft carbonation and a lingering creamy chocolate and oak on the back end. Damn, wasn’t expecting this one. 8 4 8 4 16 fonefan (51126) - VestJylland, DENMARK - AUG 29, 2017
