3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Nearly opaque brown-black wirh a long ivory head and curtains of lace. This is a solid brew - a big bitter roasted malt that grows through the palate, adding a bit of bitter chocolate earth near the end. The finish is a lingering malt that grows more bitter as it grows fainted. A very well conceived brown ale; tastes much stronger than its 5.5%abv. Recommended.
