Musically speaking, the second note of the diatonic scale, or one step above Tonic. In our terms, a more potent elixer than the original. Infused with more flavors of milk chocolate, more roast, more mouthfeel, and most important – more coffee. Whoever said there can be too much of a good thing never had a chance to try this here beer. A wiser man once said – everything in moderation, especially moderation. Cheers to that, and you! 8.2% abv
