3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Arnold’s at cask tapping party on May 19, 2011. Opaque brown color, firm but pleasant malty aroma with definite licorice notes, moderate tan head, moderate to strong (but smooth) malty flavor with licorice and rock candy elements. This beer is made exclusively for Arnolds by Christain Moerlein. Wish it were more widely available--it’s the best CM beer yet, IMHO>
