This molasses-dark offering from Tuque de Broue pours with a rich caramel head.

Dried fruits on the nose, with faint notes of chocolate and roasted malt. (The hops in question: Magnum and Glacier.)

Coffee and further malt on the tongue, but think of tropical coffee offerings that suggest citrus and other fruits.

A surprisingly clean finish for such a dark beer, with a hint of cocoa bitterness.

Enjoy with cookies in lieu of milk, or with a well-grilled piece of meat.

Hoochsavvy Grade: A-
