snifter at the brewery, followed by a growler at home.
A- Black, no light seeping thru..anywhere, this even pours thick and syrupy. Dark head that fades after a few minutes. Laces up the sides and just...sticks to the glass.
S- Dark roasted malts, chocolate, hints of plums and other dark fruits, some noticeable alcohol.
T- My oh my, chocolates, dark roast, right up front and very balanced. Some dark fruits in the middle that linger, and not a sweet type fruit. Finish is kinda of dry with a slight alcohol burn.
M- The best, very thick, and syrupy, sticky, it gets stuck in the cracks of your teeth. chewy and lingering.
O- At the moment its one of the best RIS ive had the pleasure of drinking. Hope I can find it in bottles somewhere to add to my shelf. I highly recommend this to everyone
Serving type: growler
