The ALMOST perfect beer...
Held up in my brandy glass with a wonderful tan foamy head. I sat at Vinsettas Garage
(Berkeley Mi) and looked at it for 5 minutes. The smell was chocolate/coffee/ molasses. it entered my mouth with excitement. slick/soft mouthfeel. rich dark espresso with a soft bitter finish. oh my deliciousness.
