3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Growler filled at the brewpub and consumed the next day. Pours dark brown that allows just a bit of light to pass along the edges with a moderate tan head that lasted through the first quarter of the glass and left substantial lace. Pleasant aroma of toffee and light roast with a bit of chocolate. The flavor is similar with toffee, light roast and chocolate. Dries out a bit towards the finish with light bitterness. Medium bodied.
