The aroma is a complex amalgamation of vanilla, milk chocolate, coffee beans and fruit with just enough bready malt character to remind you that yes, this is actually a beer. The vanilla and coffee character develop even more in the flavor as it warms, and it lingers into a lightly sweet finish. The hop bitterness helps lend a bit of dryness and does nothing to diminish the rich and diverse flavors within. The pour is very dark brown with ruby highlights and is brilliantly clear. This beer would pair well with chocolate for dessert, or could certainly be dessert on its own with its richness, complexity, and smooth alcohol warming.
