3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Waxed bomber from Made in Oregon. Pours very dark brown with a 4 finger humongously frothy darkish tan head that collapses in an interesting way. Aroma is sort of nutty/soapy over firm chocolate and smooth burnt malt. Med body more or less. Flavor is very nutty, quickly moving to rather dark chocolate. Thereís underlying smooth burnt/roast malt. Tho 15 IBU itís dry and decently bitter. Nut oil aspects are rather minimal, but itís clearly nutty. I think I like hazelnuts more than chestnuts where beer is concerned. This is pretty tasty and interesting.
