2.6 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
12 ounce bottle from Beer Run in Charlottesville, VA. Pours a very dark brown color with a medium creamy brown head. Decent head retention. Aroma of roasted malts, chocolate and something faint that seems dirty and off. The taste is bitter hops, some roastiness in the finish and faint nuttiness. Medium bodied. A bit muddled and well off balance.
