4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 9/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Pours a dark rich brown with a brown/off white head. Head retention is poor. Aroma of malt, coffee, spice, clove, slight hop bitterness and caramel. Amazing flavors of coffee, caramel, vanilla, smoke, spice, chocolate, cereal, hop bitterness and slight pepper. Leaves a silky buttery feel in the mouth with a slight coffee after taste. This is a must try but it is limited so don’t delay.
