3.9 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
500 ml bottle thanks to WillRunForBeer. Pours pitch black with a small head that fades to a bubbly ring. Aromas are sweet cream, brown sugar, oats, nuts, and roasted malt. Taste is sweet brown sugar and cream at first with some chocolate and cocoa. Bitter roast and hops take over in the finish. Medium to thick body, creamy mouthfeel. Abv well hidden but you can tell this it’s big by the intensity. A little sweet but this is a very smooth and tasty beer. Take away some brown sugar and it would be top notch.
