3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Draft. Pours a medium, well retained, beige head, over a clear black (SRM 40) body....nose is cocoa, chocolatte, coffee, from the roasted malts, light herbal tones, slight citrus from the hops, no esters, balance to the malts.....taste, is coffee. chocolate, cocoa, slight citrus notes, with a moderate, hop roasted malt bittern finish, balance to the malts.....mouth feel, medium to heavy body, minimal alcohol, slight creaminess. The roasted malts, are just balanced by the bitterness of the roasted malts and the hops. The hop backbone is a bit light on complexity in both aroma and flavor, and could be a little more obviously "American". BJCP 8/3/15/4/7
