Homer321 (4660) - Melboring, Florida, USA - AUG 31, 2015
Bottle from Argonaut (CO). Thanks to Brokensail for pointing out the Israel tick. Poured to lagunitas jar glass. Nose is moderate in cocoa but shows some fudge and maybe some molasses. Faint coffee. Black pour with minimal head. Taste is a showcase of chocolate covered coffee beans with a light vanilla note and a dry coffee finish. Clean, quenching palate with just enough silky mouthfeel to balance it out. A light warming in the wars after a few sips shows some alcohol, but isnt hot. Overall very good. I would drink again but would like it toned down in the abv. Tends to get a little peppery as it warms from the alcohol.
