3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft at the source. Poured a dark, black-brown color. Aroma was nice roasted malt notes, some roast, chocolate malt. Creamy, enjoyable, though this batch was a bit bitter for my tastes. Body and head more than make up for that though. Very nice looking beer.
