3.2 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Hmmmm. Confusing, as the label says. But nice in a willy wonka backwards way. Like appearance of a nice stout, good carbonation, nice head. And hits like one too, maybe cuz dark thick-tasting malt flavors. Delicious with ben n Jerry’s phish food. But then weird astringency n turns into more ale yeastiness

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap @ 10 Barrel. Dark cola colored beer with khaki foam. Roasty and slightly floral aroma. A bit of dark fruit, some bread, and a hint of licorice. There’s a lot more sweetness on the tongue than I expected. Good roasted malt character along with a lot of bread and dough. Slight earthy and floral hops. Not bad.
