2.5 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 10/20
This was poured on tap at CJs Grill and Brewing...the old Sports City Cafe which came under new ownership but apparently still has the same head brewer and brews the same beers basically. This beer poured a dark brown color with hints of mahogany in the light. Little to no head, what was there was very soapy. Very little lacing, but definitely carbonated as could be seen. Aroma was weak even when warm, and was cocoa, coffee, and chocolate in nature. The mouthfeel was very light and weak with a strong bitter hop finish, little notes of creaminess. Some chocolate grainyness in mid-taste, but overall a very watery, mildly bitter, uneventful experience. Light carbonation, completely monotone flavor.
