4.1 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 17/20
Fruity, bready and coffee aroma. Totally balck. medium on the palate and i a little oily and velvety. A little sweet. Hops are not that detectable, just faintly bitter on the finish. The malt flavor is perfect combination of coffee, cocoa, molasses and deep roasted malts. Unbelievable for the price. Great value.
