A beautiful black browness. Opaque with a generous head and good lacing. Sticky. A thin covering and a firm ring on the edge.
Sweet delicious chocolate malts. Sweet alcohol. Molasses and chewy dark breads. Imagine bottle of stout meets Godiva chocolate box.
Taste is just unreal. An alcoholic chocolate syrup that blossoms into a balanced though hot, stouty dark malt breadiness. Firm and multilayered hops give a good balance to the goings on in the glass. Cocoa and mocha fade into coffee here. There is a good lingering charcoal presence that cuts into the rather sweet body at the finish helping the hops to make a statement.
Feel is silky with a light syrupiness. Carbonation is smooth, balancing the high og and breaking up a thick, girthy brew.
This stuff is way to easy to put down. A growler is just so smooth compared to the bottled version, unless it is cellared. Nonetheless you can just about chug this one if you want but it would be such a waste. Savor this one folks. Not many are this well constructed.
Serving type: growler
