Arabica coffee and dark chocolate aromas present assertively with overripe blueberry notes dancing on the nose. On the palate, semi-sweet chocolate, espresso and black licorice all vie for attention while the bright fruitiness of blueberries cuts the body of the beer and brings it into balance. Light texture and spiciness from rye malt adds a depth of dimension and adds to this dark treat’s quaffability.
