3.8 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Dark roasted/burnt malt aroma, and possibly chocolate and dark fruit. It’s a mix. Opaque black color with a tan head that sticks around. Thin bodied. Mild carbonation. Starts with a tarry, burnt malt flavor. Dark fruits transit, and the finish is darkly burnt, with some substantial bitter. It is truly something. The finish is toasted and bitter. It hardly gets better than this.
