Crux Fermentation Project Tough Love

“Rich malt profile: caramel and toffee grounded with roast malt and a spicy alcohol warmth. Fairly earthy. Milk chocolate with strong coffee and roast, moderate sweetness and dark caramel. Some hops backing for the roast bitterness. Medium smoke note up front and enough burn on the back of the throat to suggest chiles. The sweetness supports, and cuts through, the heat.”
