Beguiling aromas of tobacco, dark chocolate, and toffee give way to light whiskey spice and smoke on the nose. Rich and full on the palate, semi-sweet chocolate, leather, and pumpernickel flavors are underpinned by treacle and molasses qualities. This decadent beer’s richer qualities are balanced by soft spice from rye whiskey and significant texture from malted rye and buckwheat.
