Had on tap at Astoria Bier and Cheese.
Not enough malty sweetness for my taste. Palette almost too crisp for the style.

3 AROMA 3/10 APPEARANCE 3/5 TASTE 7/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 14/20
Pours very black for a brown ale, minuscule cream-colored head. Not much of an aroma. Tastes like dark chocolate. Has a slight aftertaste. The low Abv makes it very drinkable, but overall it's fairly mediocre.
