3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
12 oz can with a canning date of 16 Feb. 2015 on the bottom served in a snifter.
Excellent looking with a generous size, creamy/bubbly tan head that leaves the glass speckled.
The aroma has ample dark roasted grains with hints of hops and chocolate.
Flavor: perhaps slightly more hoppy than average, this has a mildly bitter flavor with some spiciness from the hops.
Feel: medium-full body; nicely smooth; medium carbonation.
