Super Bowl victory celebration beer #1.
Thanks to Sweemzander for this treat.
A- Pours a chocolate brown with a huge head, three fingers and some sticking out of the top of the tulip. The head takes forever to die down and leaves great lacing on the side of the glass.
S- Some nice notes of milk chocolate, and dark fruits such as dates and fig. There is also just a hint of sweetness and no alcohol whatsoever.
T- This beer does not disappoint. Some nice chocolate notes to go along with some malt and some dates and currants. There is a creaminess that adds to the flavor.
M- Full bodied that coats the mouth. For as big as the head is, the carbonation isn't very apparent. Just a little heat on the back of the throat from the alcohol.
D- I could sip on this beer all night long. Great flavors and great mouthfeel make this a winner. I will be seeking this out for future Green Bay Packer Super Bowl celebrations.
