3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
UPDATED: JUL 19, 2015 [Bottle] Pours dark brown with a nice tan head that lingers well. Chocolate, roasted malt, some mild fruity (raspberry) acidity, and lightly lingering char. Really solid. Aroma is okay; chocolate, caramel, slight fruitiness again, and roasted malt. Quite thin, long finish. Overall, very nice--particularly the taste.

2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
Poured from a 12 ounce can. The aroma has a slight acidity to it, cocoa, toasted malts, light caramel. The flavor is similar, the acidity is really off putting.
