3.4 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 13/20
Pours a slightly hazy warm brown with a decent, if not persistent, pale tan head. Aroma is malty and just slightly nutty, not strong but still inviting. Flavor is malty with nutty and hoppy hints - not wonderful, but enjoyable nevertheless. Texture is smooth and fizzy, leaving a bit of a tingle behind, along with a hint of hops.

3.4 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 13/20
Once the hard to remove cork was extracted, this was poured from the ~25 oz bottle into a pint glass. A very dark brown color with a towering, long-lasting head. Plenty of sticky lacing. Has a rather sour aroma of malt with some spiciness. Flavorful, with a generous, but not extreme, load of medium and dark malt. There’s some chocolate, a hint of coffee and a touch of hops, but little of the sourness present in the aroma. A good amount of carbonation. Medium/full bodied with a very smooth finish.
