4.6 AROMA 10/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 10/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
This beer is named for fire crews. It’s appropriate this time of year because of all the work those people are doing 24/7 around here right now. It’s an excellent Stout. Couldn’t really get much better. Just needs more alcohol (make it Imperial).
