3.5 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft. Interesting. Overpowering charred flavor. Fairly crackly carbonation. Pretty dark brown nearly black color. I guess it actually does taste like a cigar... Not quite my cup of tea, err beer but you can discern some serious brewing here.
