3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Draft… Pitch black pour with a large, creamy, beige head. Fantastic retention. The aroma offers an unusual blend of cocoa and overripe banana flanked by dark berries and rooty herbs. Medium-bodied with a thin mouthfeel and stinging carbonation. The flavor is of unsweetened cocoa and a trace of banana and not a whole lot else. Finishes lightly bitter and very roasty – espresso – with a peanut butter aftertaste.

3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
On draft at Cigar City for Treatment Thursday. Pours a dark porter brown with a tan head. Nose is roast, earth, some peanut shells, some sweet peanut butter, some chocolate. Flavor is similar with roast, chocolate, earthy peanuts, some peanut butter, and hints of bitterness. Flavor is mellow with no over-the-top qualities, just a nice, easy-drinking beer.
