On tap, shiny-leafed berry-like gesho influence affixes sarsaparilla flow to grain-seared cocoa-malted Baker’s chocolate frontage, tar-like hop-charred walnut-singed bitterness, and mildewed cellar-dwelled black grape dankness. Filmy black chocolate midst picks up espresso-milked Anisette reminder, spicy cardamom lilt, and gooey anise ascension. Rich port-bourbon wining fills out clean mocha finish. In bottle, kiln-smoked maple malting picks up chocolate-covered raisin …

Dry barley theme exposes leathery barnyard hay-straw astringency buoying tangy lemon-peeled orange-grapefruit bitterness and nicely concealed phenol mocha stint. Piney nuttiness drifts into flattened aftertaste.…
