3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours black with a thin beige head that has great retention. Aroma is roast, chocolate, grain, earth and planty hops. Flavor is roast, chocolate, an odd nutty note, sort of like what comes out as a nutty note to me in some cheddar cheeses, not a bad way to be likened to cheese for a beer... Medium, sticky entry leading to an oily finish and a moderate carbonation. Not bad at all.

Bottle from khoffman43 pours deep dark amber with a tan head with little retention. Nose of coffee grinds. Taste begins with coffee grinds, light chocolate. Mild bitterness as most of balance comes from the roast. Body is medium, if not a tad thin.

Bottle. Dark brown chocolate pour, thin lacing and an aroma of some sweet chocolate and sour nuts. Flavor is lightly malty, hints of chocolate and cooked vegetables. Not sure if this bottle was off, but this didn’t seem quite right.
