3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
The Dan Journal #427. Tasted 3/7/11. 12oz bottle. Dark and pitch with a brown hue. Webbed tan head. Aromas of cocoa and salty nuts. Bitter dark chocolate and rich fudge. Medium to full bodied with definite chocolate and fudge notes. An odd note but nicely done. Decent effervescence but bitter and vegetal. Meh...

3.1 AROMA 5/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
On tap Little Rock Airport: Pours a light caramel brown with light CO2 release and little head. Aroma is a little sour, similar to the Pale Ale. Palate is smooth with a floral hoppy dominance. Taste has a nice hoppy bite but is well balanced.

Bottle. Pours brown with a tan head. Aroma of coffee and dark chocolate. A medium body. A slightly bitter beer with a roasted coffee, chocolately taste. Has a dry finish to it. I recommend it if you like something like Abita’s Turbodog. 6.2% alcohol.
