Description

Rich dark chocolate, roasted coffee, and black licorice aromas are interwoven with light notes of raisins and rustic hop traces on the nose. Viscous but balanced, flavors of fudge, espresso, and treacle dominate on the palate while woody hop flavors, clean bitterness and an understated carbonation help lift any heaviness off the palate and bring the beer into a beguiling balance.
