3.6 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pour on tap at the brewery, dark brownish black pour with thin off white, khaki colored head. Aroma brought notes of big vanilla, dark chocolate, coffee, and roasted malts, slight hints of earthy spice, touch of grainy caramel and toffee as well. Taste is a fairly nice mix of dark chocolate and roast up front, some nice vanilla but not over the top, hints of coffee, earth and spice, finishing fairly sweet but dry.
