Fudge, S’mores, café au lait and molasses aromas leap out of the glass and mingle with oak and bourbon on the nose of this confectionary creation. Viscous and full on the palate, flavors of espresso, milk chocolate, raisin pudding and tiramisu compete for attention with a pronounced bourbon spice while wood tannins and moderate carbonation cut through the sweetness of the beer and leave vanilla and dark chocolate to linger on the tongue.
