Exhibit 'A' Sunday Paper

Aroma: “Coffee, pepper, chocolate, with a hint of vegetal/tobacco from the coffee. Soft underlying sweetness with dried cherries and chocolate, and spicy alcohol.”

Flavor: “Dark roast malt and a medium dark roast coffee. Medium light body. Very tasty coffee. There’s some boozy alcohol in the finish. Nice balance. Finishes roasty and slightly bitter.”

Overall: “Dry, bitter, and intense with complexity that grows as it warms. The alcohol adds heat and spiciness throughout. Great example of complex dark malt flavors without being particularly sweet. Hints of dark chocolate, dried cherries, and tobacco. The coffee pairs well with this without being particularly dominant.”
