3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black pour. Big tan head that slowly falls, leaving a ton of lacing. Big bubbly, creamy head. Roasted grains and some fruitiness at the front of the nose. Some malt and chocolate at the back. Bitter up front, followed by a nice chocolate malt flavor. Some of the fruity notes carry over into the taste. Nice sweet finish with some black coffee bitterness in the back. Nice beer.
