Notes / Commercial Description:
Three Lick Spiker Ale is brewed with three different roasted malts creating chocolate flavors and full body taste.

Hints of bourbon and vanilla from the oak come through the aroma and flavor.

The nose is relatively light with coconut and chocolate. The flavor has light malt and grain but a stronger chocolate and coconut mid palate to finish. This isn't particularly complex, strong or even interesting but it's a good drinking beer and that's all I'm in it for.
