3.3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
2009 batch on tap @ MS. Clear brown with a medium tan head. The aroma is roasted malt, caramel and some mild peppery hops. Flavor is mostly sweet rich malt with a light amount of bitterness, which balances it out nicely. Medium body with medium carbonation and a long roasty/smokey finish. Wow has my palate changed, I remember when this came out in the mid 90’s and I thought it was really strong and intense. Still really good but almost a session beer for me now.
