3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
1/28/15. On tap at Cooter Brown’s, Jacksonville, AL. Black pour with a small tan head, mild lacing. Nice aroma, good porter aspects, malty, nutty, smooth chocolate, a little roast, subtle vanilla. Good flavor, vanilla shines a little more, milk chocolate, roast pops a little more with a hint of hop bitterness to balance it out. Maybe a little light bodied, could be silkier, but it actually suits it and goes down well. Much better than the wheat can I tried.
