3.9 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 5/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 5/5 OVERALL 15/20
Draft pour. Pours a darker brown to black with a beige head of foam. Aroma is toasty and nutty. I get a bit of dry, ashy notes. Some caramel sweetness peaks through in the taste and finishes more on the dry bitterness side.

12 oZ draft at the pub. Aroma of coffee chocolate and roasted malts. Taste is sweet salty with a bitter finish. Great balance of flavors, including coffee and chocolate and a nice malt bill. Mellow finish, tad thin, needs more hops.
