3.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 8/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 16/20
Big thanks to Durhambeer for this bottle! The beer pours a deep almost burgundy color with a good head and good lace. The aroma is chocolate and floral with a wee bit of plastic. The flavor is nutty and chocolaty with a nice hoppy character but the flavor is dominantly malty. Really tasty stuff.

12oz bottle. Aroma-blackberry. Definitely dunkel, but also weirdly fruity-actual fruit, not estery fruit. Damn good dunkel thoguh. Blackberry in flavor as well. Some blueberry too. Nice balanced bitterness lingers in the finish.
