12 West Brewing Sacrifices

"Oddly fruity—grape bubblegum or soda, strawberry hints—with toasted nut, vanilla, oak, chocolate. In the flavor: less fruit, more chocolate—on the sweet side. Nice malt complexity: a spectrum of chocolate, coffee, dried fruit, toffee. Subdued barrel. Alcohol not too harsh. A bit cloying, but rich, complex."
