Oliphant Amphibious Rodent

Oliphant Amphibious Rodent, black ale brewed with cacao nibs. 8% all./vol. Oliphant Brewing, Somerset, WI.

Dark brown color, full tan head, looking great.

In the nose: cocoa right off the bat, smooth, rich, sweet and very lovely.

In the mouth: big malt, rich, dark, delicious. great texture, mucho cocoa. Sweet and luscious. Excellent dessert beer. Little bitterness. Big cocoa, some espresso. Full bodied, long sweet, malty finish. Absolutely wonderful.

I don't know why it has the name it has, but it's a damned good beer.
