2.8 AROMA 7/10 APPEARANCE 4/5 TASTE 4/10 PALATE 3/5 OVERALL 10/20
This Alt style dark ale is a deep dark brown in color, almost the color of Cola and it has a thick tan head. It is a medium bodied beer with a rich toasted barley and light chocolate taste which is thrown off by an odd, almost citrusy finish. In conjuction with the odd finish it is a little higher on the IBU scale than I care for.
By itself I wouldn’t pick this one as my drink of choice, but oddly enough when I began to drink it with food, I just happened to be eating Kerry Gold Dubliner Cheese and a Gala Apple, it was much more tolerable. I assume because the sweetness and strong tastes helped to mask the hoppy bitterness of the beer allowing me to enjoy other aspects of the beer a little.
