Ex Novo Brewing Kill the Sun
What the brewers say
"Notes of roasty dark chocolate, coffee, molasses, vanilla, marshmallows, graham crackers, and smooth whiskey."
What our panel thought
"Barrel up front with vanilla, oak, a bit of banana. Dark chocolate and coffee malt come in next and show up in the flavor as well. A fairly big initial sweetness fades quickly into a medium full body. The barrel character adds a toasted woodsy note throughout."
What our editors thought
"Overripe dark fruit on the nose with a hit of baking spice and cocoa powder. The sip continues the fruity display, with apple and dark cherry pitched against a very bitter black malt backdrop."
