3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Bomber from Bine and Vine. Pours very dark brown/black with a creamy/foamy 3 finger tan head. Aroma is mostly chocolate with a hint of coffee. Med + body. Flavor starts chocolate then a huge burst of nutty coffee intrudes. Then it’s definitely hazelnut. Lots of flavor for a stout. Finishes dry and burnt malt bitter. Good stuff.
