Appearance: Pours dark brown with tight tan bubbles.
Aroma: Dusty cocoa like malt and wet dog like roasted malts.
Taste: Burnt roast cocoa vanilla. Ashes and coffee. Finishes roasty. Not that sweet.
Mouthfeel: Full bodied decently carbonated.
Overall: The word honey triggers a special sensation in my brain, and I immediately think of it’s sweet, goey goodness. I was looking for just a touch and unfortunately didn’t find it. While decent, I wouldn’t trade too hard for it.
