3.5 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draught glass at the joint- solid black in color, 1 finger dark tan head that laced, aroma of cocoa, a nicely dark roasted malt, dark chocolate, and late autumn underneath. Hits the mouth with a very nice wide body, malt is all over the place, chocolate and thickness in the middle, finish is cloying and lasting- well over an hour as I took the train back and got home. They hit this one!
