3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Very dark color with brown head. Aroma has sweet, roasty notes and also a hint of chocolate. Taste is also roasty and bittersweet with some cacao in the background. Carbonation is a bit high for the style. Pretty nice overall but not one of the best.
