3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 12/20
On tap, from old notes. Deep brown in color with thick tan foam, good retention and lacing. Big malty aroma, little bit of banana and coriander, molasses maybe? Flavor is very sweet, lots of dark brewing sugars, lots of dark malts, just a hint of coriander. Very tasty, but VERY rich.
