3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Keg at BrewDog Camden. It pours darkest brown/near black with a medium beige head. The nose is roasted malt, toast, spice, caramel, cocoa, brown sugar and dark fruit. The taste is smooth roast, toast, spice, honey, bruised dark fruit, berry, cereal and cocoa with a dry, bitter-sweet finish. Light-medium body and moderate carbonation. Perhaps a touch thin for the style. Decent enough though.
