I'd be a huge fan of Heavy Seas even if they weren't local. The fact that they ARE local is am added bonus since I get to support local craft beer and enjoy top notch beer.
I sampled this at Beers and Cheers in Germantown so I'm not coming into this totally blind. It was delicious the first time I sampled.
Look-dark brown with a ring of brownish foam
Smell-wow. I can smell the dark chocolate right off.
Taste-chocolate right on the lips but that dissolves quickly into the boozey bourbon flavor.
