3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Had on tap at the tasting room. It was on Firkin. Very cloudy pour. Brownish/copper color. Aroma was of burnt toast. A bit bitter on the tongue for me. Flavors of coffee some hints of nutmeg/cinnamon with a pepper kick on the back. It was okay, just not totally my thing!

Pours muddy brown with notes of malt and light prune. The brown shows nice with a molasses and date hint with a long hard heat from the pepper finish.
