3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
On draft at Capitol City Brewing Co. in Virginia.
The beer is dark brown with a tan head that leaves ample lacing on the glass. Malt, roast, and chocolate are the main forces at work here. Pretty good. Decent balance. The main issue I have this brew is the body, which is thin and watery. Overall, this was one of the more enjoyable beers I have had from this brewery.
Serving type: on-tap
