3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours a deep chocolate brown, really close to black actually. The head is huge, fluffy and tan, leaving a small thin cap and spotty lacing.
Aroma is smoked malts and roasted coffee beans with some dark chocolate thrown in. Smells like a campfire with s’mores close by.
Dry, roasty taste up front with some lactose sweetness. It’s got a weird tartness mixed with what tastes like fresh hops. Some vanilla and leather as well.
Mouthfeel is super smooth and creamy with strong carbonation.
The aroma is excellent but the taste doesn’t quite come together for me. Interesting beer but not my favorite.
