Fifty West Brewing BBA Death Valley Shootout
"Rum-raisin dark-fruit nose; figs with dark-chocolate edges. Doughy malt with fresh floral and stone-fruit flavors—roundly sweet and bitter—roast, hops, and booze dovetail nicely. Medium-full body, tasting heavy yet feeling light. Rich, warming finish—whiskey and wine checked by bitter espresso."
