3.1 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Sampled from a 12 oz brown bottle this beer poured a black color with a small foamy brown head that faded quickly and left a bit of lacing. The aroma was roasty with strong anise, wood and coffee. The flavor was tart, tangy and a bit off with cherry, anise, coffee and hints of vanilla and cola. Medium length finish. Medium body. Ok.
