4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 16/20
A fairly roasted aroma with some chocolate. A nice beer, it’s thick but doesn’t stick in the finish but also doesn’t die away. Good stuff.

This was some damn good stuff. Roasty and sweet coffee aroma. Pours black with a thin tan head. Flavor is more roasty coffee. A little sweet. Some fruitiness? Finishes mildly hoppy as I can pick up some citrus on the back end. Finishes very smooth.
