9.31% ABV

Kegged on 9/12/10

Color is a dark brown with hints of copper

Aroma slightly tangy at first mellows with air and better served in a wide mouth glass. Aroma has tinges of an alcohol scent.

Carbonation, well it’s kegged. It did take longer then other beers to carbonate in the keg.

Mouth feel is rich feel with light carbonation. It comes off as a “thick” beer.

Taste, hints of chocolate hit you first. Nutty flavor comes in back end and really comes through as the beer warms a bit.  Little to no hop influence, malty for sure. Slightly lingering aftertaste.  Works perfect for dessert. (ice cream float) In my opinion, a very luxurious beer. 

I’ve have been lucky enough to have quite a few “beer” people try it (including both the owners of Bootleggers and The Bruery) and have gotten very nice feedback. I will be brewing this again.
