Verboten Brewing Barrel-Aged Cake or Death
"Solid chocolate and espresso aroma; moderate barrel and whiskey. Notes of light cherry, raisin, soy sauce, marmite. An explosion of roast and fruit in the flavor: rich chocolate-espresso, esters of cherry, blueberry, fig, and black currant. Subdued barrel. Roasty-dry finish. Lovely richness and balance."
