3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle. It’s a clear, reddish dark brown beer with a small, off-white to light beige head. Roasted, chocolatey aroma with some notes of hops. A good dash of coffee thrown in for good measure. Some chocolate and coffee in the mostly roasted flavor, where I also sense a dash of licorice, oddly enough. Smooth and nicely carbonated. Full body. Lighlty roasted and bitter finish. Certainly a nice brown ale. 110908
