3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a very dark brown with a medium dark tan head. The aroma contains lots of candyish chocolate, some slight mint, but overall it has a real musty impression to it. Taste is more complex. Chocolate, pine, grapefruit, and a little bit of licorice. It is hoppy and bitter, with the citrus impressions becoming more pronounced at the end. Aftertaste is pine and grapefruit. Full bodied, with a more thick texture. Decent carbonation. This one is pretty good, although kind of unusual. There is quite a bit going on here and many should enjoy this more probably more than I do. I just don’t think this is my style.
