My first beer from this brewery! Opaque black color, tiny brown head. Roasted aroma, burned, black coffee. Full-bodied. Sweet caramel, soya sauce, licorice and tobacco in the flavor. Soft palate. Short finish. Warming alcohol in the aftertaste.

3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
11 ounce pour - $6.00 at Taco Mac in Kennesaw, Georgia.
Appearance: Dispensed a black body with a small, yellow-beige head deposited thin lace sheets on the way down.
Smell: Moderately roasty maltiness in the nose with notes of black licorice twists, soft Hershey’s Kisses, and a sniff of an individually-wrapped California prune.
Taste: It says "chocolate," it says "cream," but it starts off with licorice, then gaining some traction with semi-sweet chocolate, light vanilla, and a restrained, hesitant roastiness. Splash of prune juice, a bit stark, akin to the quality of a stout aged two or so years, though, as it warms, it kinda settles down with the chocolate coming forward more. Very, very low hop character, essentially nil bitterness. A Reader’s Digest of the various tastes clumped into the smooth finish.
Mouthfeel: Medium-plus body. Medium carbonation. Slick, silken mouthfeel.
Overall: Breckenridge is a brewery that, well, often fails to satisfy, but this 72 is pretty good.
