A huge thanks to Julian for sharing this on New Year’s Eve. This black pour has a nice smokey flavor combined with malty complexities. Very tasty.

3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Black in color with a khaki head. Roasted malt, light smoke, grass, and yeast up front on the nose. A bit of toasted malt sweetness, citrus peel, and spice. A subtle fruit aroma and flavor, particularly of figs. Slight bitterness to the flavor along with plenty of yeast and roast. Very light smoke, mostly just roast and char. Some dark fruits, citrus peel, and spice/black pepper. Dry on the finish, nice carbonation.
