The latest from the Anomoly series and a pleasant treat for the cold winter weather.

A - Pours a nice dark ruby red, finger of light mocha head, decent retention and some sporadic lacing.
S - Musty cocoa, fresh ground coffee, toasted grains, cooked oatmeal, with a bitter chocolate finish alongside subtle vanilla notes.
T - Nicely balanced with a sweet coffee flavour, mocha notes, hints of milk chocolate, and mild vanilla coming through. The vanilla is a tad light, but adds a subtle sweetness that makes this brew nicely balanced airing on the side of sweet over bitter. Coffee tends to dominate the palette after, which I really enjoyed.
M - Medium bodied, smooth and a touch of dryness on the finish.
O - So close to missing this release, and extremely glad I was able to find it on tap. Definitely kickin myself for missing this at the brewery because I could've easily taken down a growler of this. Well worth seeking out and a solid brew from a series that continues to impress.

Serving type: on-tap
