Bomber split with friends. Big thanks to BA anotherjoe for gifting me with as an extra in a recent box exchange. The brew appears a mahogany to burnt amber color with a finger of khaki head. A full wall of webby lace sticks to the glass.
The aromatics are quite fruited seemingly from a mixture if alcohol notes and hops. A mild chocolate note is present before more of an herbal to dank backing of more hop character.
The flavor of this brew suggests raw cacao or green nib quality with a fruity alcohol and floral hop aspect just like the aroma suggests. Some toasty grain to molasses persists into the aftertaste. Overall not bad.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Such a strange and unique combination of characteristics but decent enough to pay a visit to if given the opportunity. I am appreciative of the chance to try this but I probably would not have it again if I had other options available.
