3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
On tap at Monk’s Kettle. Near lack pour with tan head that leaves some nice lace. Roasted grain dominates the nose with notes of coffee and something green. Lots of light coffee on the palate with a hint of chocolate and something slightly hoppy. Tasty and easy going. A good session dark.

Draught @ Toronado, San Francisco
Pours dark brown, almost black, with a foamy head. Aroma of toasted malts, some hops and earthy notes. Taste is slightly roasty with some bitterness and hints of chocolate. Finish is malty and bitter. Feels quite light bodied, but still quite complex. Well balanced, enjoyable.

4 AROMA 8/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 4/5 OVERALL 16/20
Tap, Hopmonk Tavern, Sonoma, CA, 14/08/12. Big, chilled, beige-piled weizen of dark ruby beer. Neopolitan ice cream, blueberry and fag (cigarette) ash aroma. Smoky with a teasing interplay of pistachio, blueberry ice cream, black chocolate, coffee and blackcurrant. And a sprinkle more ash. Huge-bodied and conditioned at the strength-amazed to find it weighs in at a paltry 5%. Really, really nice.

This beer has a very dark Black look with a Hint of copper undertones. It pours with a very thin wispy cream colored head. It tastes of coffee and is rather light tasting. Overall a solid good tasting beer.
