3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Bottle, 14C. Bottle says 9% ABV. Black with a large tan head that lasts and laces pretty well. Aroma of coffee, roasted barley, under-ripe berries. Taste is surprisingly unlike the aroma, apart from coffee: chocolate fudge, coffee, orange blossoms, some pine. Slightly syrupy, but not all that heavy. Dry, somewhat powdery finish, bitterness creeps up a bit. A lot to like about this, but the aroma didn’t really lead me into the beer.
