4.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 19/20
This bottled brew from a bottle shop poured a head of foamy finely sized dark brown colored bubbles that were very long lasting and left behind a no visible carbonation opaque and an excellent lacing. The nice aroma was black malt vinous brown malt roasted malt coffee and licorice. The smooth mouth feel was tingly at the start and at the finish with a lingering vinous aftertaste. The yummy flavor contained notes of semi-sweet black malt roasted malt vinous toasted malt licorice and brown malt. A wonderful best in class brew.
