The initial sips revealed a monster amount of chocolate which was immediately overpowered by a tidal wave of booze, fading into malts. The booze character is reminiscent of a quad or bourbon barrel aged style beer, sans the bourbon character. I found the booze intensity to fall as I progressed, and I wasn’t sure if that was attributable to the beer warming up or simply my palate compensating for the flavor. I start to pick up a sweet orange citrus at the end of each sip. As the beer temperature continues to increase, the complexity of the nib chocolate matches. I also start to get what I would describe as a cinnamon or mild chili spiciness blending into the flavors. At its warmest, there is a general cloying sweetness along with vanilla. The thick viscosity of the beer makes for a satisfying mouthfeel.
