Has been ranked the number one beer in the world at RateBeer.com.
From the judges:
"Rich, full bodied, decadent, complex is how I first describe this brew. Dark, bitter chocolate/cocoa, molasses, a hint of licorice, burnt coffee, caramel, blend with a touch of umami to satisfy the palate's craving for something almost over the top. There are several different variations of the brew, some barrel ages, others with different coffee and cocoa nib infusions and still more." - Sean Paxton, The Homebrew Chef
