3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Good with a twist. Roasted malt and wood or earthy aroma. Dark brown and murky. Lighter than expected palate. Smooth with good carbonation. Standard roasted flavors of a Porter but deeper and more dry. A hint of wood and earth touched by pecan, which I found more subtle. Enjoyed it.
