3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Sample size on draft at the Mishawaka Public House. Pours dark brown with a thinner mocha head that leaves some spotty lace. Nose involves chocolate milk, dark crusty bread, some raisin notes. Somewhat sweet, fairly bitter. Light bodied, softly carbed, silky, with a tingly vanilla finish. Nice brew with a good flavor. I would like perhaps more body, but this is a session brew by design, and there’s nothing wrong with that. This should be a quite popular offering for them.

3.4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
tap at 800 degrees in February - Smells of coffee and sweet milk chocolate. It’s a near black brew with a very small head. The flavor is sweet with lots of chocolate. It’s medium bodied and finishes with roast coffee. I thought any bourbon character was quite subtle. Good brew.
