3.2 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
Location: 12 oz bottle from Buy Rite, 10/13/13
Aroma: Toasted and roasted malt nose, with some smoke, and a little bit of sweet malts
Appearance: It pours a dark brown color with a small head and very little lace
Flavor: The taste is more sweet than the aroma suggested, still plenty of roast and a little smoke
Palate: The body is medium, it feels a hint watery on the mouth, with a smokey finish
Decent, but not special It gets a nice smokiness, which is probably the most interesting component of the beer. Otherwise, it’s just okay.
