3.1 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Tap in Arlington. Clear dark orange color. Mine has zero head but Fratto’s has a small beige ring. Aroma of baker’s chocolate, sweet grain and hot cocoa. Taste is light on the dark chocolate with bitter overtones. Finish is slightly dry but not overbearing. Decent but is lacking the rich leafy maltedness that comes from a solid doppel.
