3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Black/brown pour - thin tan head. Aroma is heavily roasted malt, hint of charred nuts, coffee, chocolate, and a slight grassy hop note. Flavor is a lot more of the heavily roasted malt, dose of dark roast coffee, caramel, and then has a nice hop bitterness to offset things. Palate appropriate for the style. Nice beer overall!

3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Motor oil brown, opaque, huge tan head with a scent of cocoa, burnt toast and day old milk. A tasty blend of roasted malts, mineral salt, cocoa, has a bitter hop follow mixed with the mineral tanginess of licking a penny. I know that doesn’t sound appetizing but it works.
