3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
A nice brownish red body with a tan head that was fairly thick at first but then faded to a thin coating. Some lace. Aroma seemed to have a nice roasted malt base upfront and some nice subtle malt notes of chocolate and coffee. A slightly mild smoke presence in the back. Flavor was nice and well balanced roasted malts up front seemed nice. While the flavor was good it really did not wow me. I was expecting a little more strength of the roasted malts and it was moderately dry.

3.7 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark brown pour with creamy brown head. Roast malt aroma with hints of cocoa. Flavor is as promised: dry. Roasted coffee, with a light bitterness in the finish (reminiscent of medium dark cocoa or black coffee). Very nice, would love to try a nitro version of this.
