I need to invent an instant wax remover, I’d be rich. This is easier to drink o draft just so you don’t have to deal with the wax. Almost totally black color, huge maroon brown head with good retention and lacing. Aroma of cinnamon dust and baking brownies. Taste is rich spiced brown bread, gingerbread. Delicious.

Bottle shared during the RBWG 2015 Grand Tasting. Pours rich brown-black with a creamy tan head. Very, very nice. Lots of tasty coffee and cocoa. Medium to full bodied with fine carbonation. Balanced finish with more rich coffee, chocolate, touches of cinnamon. Great balance and depth. I love it.

This cleverly waxed bottle pours an opaque black color with a medium foamy tan head that diminishes gradually. Small patches of lacing on the glass. Coffee, roast malt and slight cinnamon in the nose. Full-bodied with a roasty character and flavors of black coffee, dark malts and cinnamon. The finish is mildly bitter with a charred malt and coffee aftertaste. Pretty good overall. hopdog (12953) - Lansdale, Pennsylvania, USA - AUG 31, 2016
