3.8 AROMA 4/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
This draft brew from a beer bar poured a small sizes head of mostly diminishing fine to medium sized light brown colored bubbles that left behind an opaque dark black brown colored body with no visible carbonation. The aroma was very mild with soft malty notes. The mouth feel was tingly at the start and finish with a lingering coffee aftertaste. The flavor contained notes of coffee, dark malts, roasted malts and mild hops. A very good beer to start my weekend with.
