3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Nearly black with ruby highlights. A slight tan head develops but disappears quickly. Interesting aroma of coffee, chocolate, and vegetables. Medium bodied, fairly lively. I’m not quite sold on the flavor. It starts pretty good with coffee, bitter chocolate, and chicory. The finish is a bit of a disappointment. A touch of smoke but an aftertaste of ash. Not a bad beer.
