3.6 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Bottle from Wine & Cheese in Clayton, MO. Pours dark brown/black with a foamy/creamy 3 finger tan head. Aroma of slightly sour chocolate. Med body. Flavor is smooth burnt malt, chocolate and a little milk sugar. Seemingly finishing a tad sour, but the chocolate and malt pretty much submerges that. Nice drink. Suddenly it seems a bit dry and almost astringent. ?
