3.3 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
A: The beer pours a dark brown color with a rather sizable khaki head.
S: It’s very roasty on the nose with a mild metallic character. Notes of coffee and chocolate (a lot of chocolate, actually), along with some molasses. It’s surprisingly sweet.
T: The flavor is also very sweet, too sweet for me. Molasses and chocolate with a fair bit of roasted malts. It’s a touch thin/watery and that comes through on the flavor.
M: A little bit thin, especially for an 8% beer, with a medium to high carbonation.
O: Too much sweetness and a little too watery for my tastes.
