2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 12/20
Draft at Ale Asylum. Pours black with a beige head. Heavy carbonation. Aroma is roasted malts, with weak hints of oatmeal and chocolate. The taste very mild, with only the slightest notes of roasted malts and chocolate. Tasted more like nothing than anything. Very watery body makes this one very drinkable without being overly good. If it was cheaper and more readily available, it could be a good ’’get drunk and party’’ stout. Sad to say it, but i was very dissapointed.
