Postmortem Brew Review
Very dark brown body color.
Malt sweetness, chocolate and toffee along with roasted nuttiness in the aroma.
Light brown, two finger head that vanishes quickly.
Sticky, stringy lacing adheres to the inside of the glass.
Nutty first note followed by rich maltiness.
Moderate amount of carbonation.
Medium bodied with stealth alcohol action.

Grim Reaper's Eulogy
Bolita has three great things going for it. All at once it is playful, lingering and seductive. It's playful because of the great brown ale style that brings roasty nuttiness to the sweet malts, toffee and latent chocolate notes. Lingering, because its flavor wraps around your tongue and coats the back of your mouth. It draws you in, sip after sip, which leads us to - - - Seductive. Let's say that the 9% ABV in this generous sized bottle will pack a velvet punch. Pow!

Playful + Lingering + Seductive  =  A fun to hang around with, TKO.
