3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
330ml bottle pours almost black in color with a plentiful light brown head with good retention leaving a nice lacing on the glass. Aroma is roasted malts and chocolate. Taste is roasted malty bitterness balanced with the malty sweetness and some hoppy bitter notes in the finish. Light to medium body and adequate carbonation. Although a little thin in the body, I really enjoyed the balance of flavors that this stout offered. Well done!!!
