My first few sips are a very pleasant creamy mouthfeel followed by a big hit of cocoa nibs. The chocolate intensity is actually largest at the end of the sip. The coffee from the aroma comes through on the palate as a charred, slightly bitter background note. I find that the coffee flavors serve to balance out the chocolate sweetness throughout the drinking experience. The mouthfeel is quite velvety and satisfying. My initial tasting was at 66 Freedom and as the beer warms up, oak starts to come through along with vanilla.
