Thanks Eric for gifting me with a bottle of this. 12oz bottle poured into a standard pint. The brew appears brown in color with clarity seen around the edges. A tan cap 2 fingers strong sits atop and slowly fades.
The aromatics have quite a bit of minerals and carbonic quality. A hint of herbal hops overtop some dark fruity alcohol character. Molasses and roasty grain fill out the rest of the void.
The taste includes notes of cocoa and vanilla. Some chocolate powder and a hint of dark fruit to hebal hop inclusion. A sticky vanilla bean aftertaste coupled with minerals fades into the aftertaste.
This is a medium bodied brew with a modest amount of carbonation. Overall a smooth and easy drinking brew that for the most part delivers as advertised. I appreciate the opportunity to try it but would probably not willingly purchase this.
