3.7 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft at Barcade, Philadelphia. Nice nose of day old coffee with cream and a plum type of aroma. Flavor is dark roast, coffee, burnt lactose sugar and thought the middle it has a dark fruit flavor that reminds me of prunes or plums. Real interesting way of balancing the roasted malts. The flavor is rather nice and a slightly different take on the style. Sweet lingering roast after the sip. Nice fuller body with a ashy, chalk texture. Well worth a try if you see it on tap.

Drought. Dark brown with small creamy tan head, roasted malt aroma, burnt taste, low carbonation, medium finish. I would expect a sweeter, chocolatey taste but not bad.
