3.8 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 15/20
Reviewed from notes. On tap at the brewpub in August 2009.
Pours a very dark brown color, appearing black unless itís held up to the light. The tan head has pretty good retention, but doesnít stick around for all that long. Nose is roasted malt, chocolate, coffee, and a bit of light toffee and caramel. Really nice and complex. The taste is pretty nice with some roast and coffee plus chocolate. The mouthfeel is what really helps the taste out; nice and creamy. Overall, by far their best beer and one that I enjoyed quite a bit.
Serving type: on-tap
