Brown-sugared cocoa-buttered burnt caramel sweetness provides lusty opening salvo to paramount stylistic icon. Bitter coffee bean stead reinforces off-dry hop toasting. Maple-sapped oats and roasted chestnuts neatly justify smoked chocolate-mocha malting. Ubiquitous espresso undercurrent surges above dramatic barleywine intrigue. Full-bodied and frothy like a creamy eclair, yet never thick, heavy or sinewy; goes down like silk. In a class by itself.
