Pair with BBQ Beef Brisket, Goat Cheese and The Meaning of Life. 6.5% alcohol. 22 IBUs. This beer is brewed with chocolate from the Pinellas Chocolate Company.
Roasted malt and chocolate aroma. Big roasted flavor to start, along with some chocolate and a touch of coffee. Char and smoke hints follow. Nice creamy texture.
Light sweetness in the background takes the edge off an initially aggressive roasty bitterness. And while a little warmth took on some of that harsh roasted flavor, I could have used a little more sweetness and less roasty bang! Check it out and let it warm up a bit.
