2.6 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 2/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 10/20
Bottle. Opens with much more "pfttthh" than expected and pours an extremely heady dark copper brown color with a light tan head. Roasty with some sublte chocolate notes, maybe a little black licorice as well. Have to wait a while for the head to recede to even try to drink. Medium mouthfeel. Roast, dark chocolate, and a slight metallic taste. Not a big fan of this one.
