3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Pours basically black with a semi loose tan head that leaves good lace. The aroma is charred oak and roasty coffee. Some raisin and dark fruit show up in the bouquet as well. The flavor is dry and pretty roasty with some fruity coffee and ark fruit. The beer is pretty bitter and slightly astringent with a bit of a distracting apple rind presence.
Pretty nice beer in general.
