3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
12oz bottle shared with Ed5388. Poured a thinner watery pitch black with a super small foamy tight foamy beige head. Aroma of chocolate, dar bread, slight rye spiceyness and some chocolate cake batter. Medium bodied that is a slight touch dry on the end along with average carbonation. Flavor of burnt toast, touch of dark coffee beans, chocolate and vanilla extract, some citrus rind with warmth. Meh this one is just okay.

there’s a bomb in the freezer .. . deep black . . mild foam, strong lacing .. mild mouthfeel .. . notes of deep burnt rye and toast so burnt it falls apart when you try to put even the smallest dab of butter on it, and forget peanut butter- you’re shit outta luck on that one...
