3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
On tap at Red Robin in Chattanooga. Even though it’s a lager, this beer has plenty of body and bigger mouthfeel that I would normally associate with a darker ale. This is the third offering of the weekend from Big River, and they’ve all been solid.

A dark brown color with a beige head. Aroma contains some chocolate and caramel both faint. Flavor is somewhat malty with caramel, chocolate, and some raisins. Finish is a bit dry with some sour notes. Overall a pretty good lager.

Pint on tap. Opaque chocolate with a lasting film of creamy bubbles. Mild nose of coffee, berries, and dry cocoa. Taste is a meld of dry cocoa, dark toasted walnut, coffee, pith and a touch of tart berry. Medium body is smooth and well balanced.
