Poured into a Darkness stem, on a hot humid night in Decatur. Wonderful dark tan head, frothy with tiny bubbles in the middle. Not one iota of light penetrating through this glass. Ring of tan stays on throughout...great ringed lacing.
As expected, strong whiffs of fresh roasted espresso. Tobacco, ancho chili, cinnamon as well.
Sweet lactose on the front end...very unassuming at first. Hard to believe this could be 10%. Creamy Nestle Quik cocoa taste with some bitter chocolate riding with.
Bitter mouthfeel, with some spice but still quite creamy. Quite delicate finishing dry and roasty bitter. Tasting a subtle ancho chili in the back, which is quite nice on the cocoa.
Drinkability off the charts. Nice job Surly
