2.9 AROMA 6/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 6/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 11/20
Pours garnet-tinted brown with a tan head that quickly fades to a collar from a cold bottle. No lacing to speak of. Aroma is mild, nutty malt with a echo of cocoa. Taste is somewhat watery, metallic and flat with semi-sweet flavors of malt, cocoa and caramel and mild bitterness to finish. Better as it warms; drinkable but not memorable from a brewery that has some solid output.
