3.6 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
808s n FartRates review #13, courtesy of course of a kindly northerner who’s name unfortunately escapes me.
Pours basically black with a smallish head.
The aroma is roasty & chocolaty with a good coffee character. Inviting and very quintessentially stout-like.
The flavor is a touch ashy and fairly bitter without a whole lot of sweetness, although nor is it dry. It’s very nice, roasty and rich with good dark chocolate and coffee notes.
