BBB63 (6557) - La Porte, Indiana, USA - NOV 9, 2013
3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Backlogged rating from 2012 Firkin Day: Near opaque deep brown with a small tan head, spotty lace. The aroma has pronounced coffee vapours, roast, slight cocoa, grassy hops and a touch of minty notes. The taste has a nice bitter coffee balance with chocolate, caramel and bready malts. Moderately roasted with a grassy and herbal bitterness., hint of pine needles as well. The mouth feel is a tad thin and ashy. Not too shabby.
