3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Frothy pour, dark which left fairly nice lacing. Soapy roasted aroma. I worked through my sixpack of this and really didn’t "feel it" until about the fourth one. I’m not sure what my problem was. This is pretty good. Really roasty, yet milky as well. Just a touch of lactic flavor, but not offputting. Chocolatey and sweet, but not cloying. Really smooth mouthfeel, coating on the tongue. I liked it.
