3 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
12oz bottle at Red Hen in DC. Pours a deep brown with some creamy, thin, off white head. Nose is alright, some cocoa pods, some gristy character, a little dusty, some caramel. Flavor follows right along, sweet malt, caramel, a little cheap rootbeer, some chocolate too, light bread crust. Watery finish. Unoffensive.
