3.3 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 5/10 PALATE 2/5 OVERALL 14/20
Dark red-brown, beige fizzy head with some big suds, wet frothy lacing. Smells of roasted dark malt, some burnt coffee, grassy hop, light toffee, spice, and bready biscuit. Taste is burnt dark malt bitterness, a bit like watery burnt coffee, light biscuit and spice. Body is a little flat, bitter, grassy. Not bad. Like a hoppier brown ale with with some burnt coffee and biscuit. Would be better with some depth to balance the bitter burnt flavour. I like black IPAs that are less grassy in their roastiness and more chocolate/coffee/smoky.
