3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Thanks to Joel for the 2014 bomber. Poured fairly thick black with a dark tan head that fizzled fairly quickly. The aroma picked up mostly roasted, standard black malt with some cocoa, vanilla, and sweet molasses joining. The flavor found near-burnt black malts, molasses, and a kiss of vanilla bean at the core, with burnt roast and a bit of herbal hops on the edges.. finished bitter and a touch acidic, with lots of roast. This was a solid drinker, but it didn’t do anything all that exciting.
