3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Ooh, kinda pours like a Guinness with a slow rising brown head, decently solid, but not cream stout style like them English things. Hoppy aroma of barley, or perhaps barleyey aroma of hops. Hmmm. Flavour is a sharp hit of coffee with an oily sharp hop finish. Big and a good punch in the face, well made, like a big ol’ soup of molasses with cigarette butts mixed in. I like me a good kick in the face once in awhile.
