3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Thanks Jason for sharing! Super carbonated when opened, sits black with a profuse fizzy tan head. Nose shows coffee and a touch of vanilla and wonderfully nuanced dark grain notes. Hard to get much out of the flavor due to the excessive carbonation. Some cacao and coffee with bitter dark grain but I feel like the more delicate compounds are lost in the maelstrom of carbonation.
